A Developmental Study of the Effects of Irrelevant Information on Speeded Classification
Strutt, George F.; And Others
Journal of Experimental Child Psychology, 20, 1, 127-135, Aug 75
This study examined how well subjects of different ages were able to ignore the presence of irrelevant stimulus information. The speed of classification of 6-, 9- and 12-year-olds and adults was measured. Significant effects of age, sex, number of irrelevant dimensions, and relevant dimension on speed of classification were obtained. (GO)
