Flexibility in Children's Use of Spatial and Categorical Organizational Strategies in Recall.
Plumert, Jodie M.
Developmental Psychology, v30 n5 p738-47 Sep 1994
Two experiments examined the development of recall organization by observing use of categorical and spatial clustering strategies and how encoding experiences and recall task influence degree of organization. Children and adults recalled furniture from their home. Older subjects organized items spatially; when recalling objects and their locations, 12-year olds used more spatial than categorical organization. (TM)
