Capacity Limitations of a Classic M-Power Measure: A Modified Dual-Task Approach.
Foley, Elizabeth J.; Berch, Daniel B.
Journal of Experimental Child Psychology, v66 n2 p129-43 Aug 1997
Employed a modified dual task approach with 7- to 9-year olds to determine whether one of the classic M-power measures, the digit placement task, is indeed capacity-limited. Found that several critical assumptions concerning the use of the dual-task procedure were met; further testing revealed that the digit placement task is indeed capacity-limited. (EV)
