Measuring Children's Attention Span: A Microcomputer Assessment Technique.
Murphy-Berman, Virginia; And Others
Journal of Educational Research, v80 n1 p23-28 Sep-Oct 1986
A microcomputer technique was used to measure the attention span of 115 boys and 117 girls in kindergarten through the ninth grade. Attentional ability increased only up through the fifth grade, and both the false alarm rate and the interstimulus interval scores were related to behavioral activity during test sessions.
