Memory Self-Efficacy and Strategy Use in Successful Elders.
McDougall, Graham J.
Educational Gerontology, v21 n4 p357-73 Jun 1995
The Metamemory in Adulthood Questionnaire, Memory Self-Efficacy Questionnaire, and measures of depression and health status were completed by 169 adults over 55 in Texas and Louisiana. External memory strategies (lists, notes) were used more often than internal (elaboration, rehearsal). Memory efficacy decreased significantly with age, and anxiety was inversely correlated with health status. (SK)
