Task Complexity, Problem Representation, and Problem-Solving Performance by Younger and Older Adults.
Hartley, Alan A.; Anderson, Joan Wilson
Journal of Gerontology, v38 n1 p78-80 Jan 1983
Tested the hypothesis that increased task difficulty elicits more efficient problem-solving strategies from older adults, using "Twenty Questions" tasks with either 64 or 10,000 possible solutions. Although younger adults were more efficient, there was not evidence that task difficulty affected problem-solving for either age group. (Author/JAC)
