Establishing the Reliability and Validity of a Computerized Assessment of Children's Working Memory for Use in Group Settings
St Clair-Thompson, Helen
Journal of Psychoeducational Assessment, v32 n1 p15-26 Feb 2014
The aim of the present study was to investigate the reliability and validity of a brief standardized assessment of children's working memory; "Lucid Recall." Although there are many established assessments of working memory, "Lucid Recall" is fully automated and can therefore be administered in a group setting. It is therefore ideally suited to large-scale screening or research purposes. The findings indicated suitable test-retest reliability. Scores were also correlated with children's scores on the Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children-IV working memory subtests, scholastic attainment, and ratings of children's working memory behaviors. Working memory scores also distinguished between children with and without special educational needs. The findings are discussed in terms of practical implications for practitioners.
