Age Differences in Children's Performance on Measures of Component Selection and Incidental Learning
Hale, Gordon A.; Taweel, Suzanne S.
Journal of Experimental Child Psychology, 18, 1, 107-116, Aug 74
Children of ages 5 and 8 years were given one of three learning tasks: a component selection problem, in which the two components of the stimuli were redundant and could both serve as functional cues, and two incidental learning tasks, in which one stimulus component was task-relevant and the other was incidental. Results suggest a developmental improvement in the flexibility of attention deployment. (Author/CS)
