Franks, Bridget A.
Educational Gerontology, v24 n1 p47-68 Jan-Feb 1998
College-educated adults (44 aged 18-22, 20 aged 30-49, and 20 aged 61-79) and adults with no college education (15 aged 62-68) were given the task of making deductive inferences in prose passages. There were no differences among college-educated adults, but the oldest college-educated group performed significantly better than those with no college. (SK)
