Working Memory and Individual Differences in Comprehension and Memory of Text.
Masson, Michael E. J.; Miller, Jo Ann
Journal of Educational Psychology, v75 n2 p314-18 Apr 1983
This study replicated Daneman and Carpenter's finding that the reading span test, as a measure of working memory storage and process functions, is predictive of performance on standard reading comprehension tests. It showed that reading span is related to the ability to draw inferences from, integrate, and encode text information. (Author/PN)
