Mental-Attentional Capacity: Does Cognitive Style Make a Difference?
Baillargeon, Raymond; Pascual-Leone, Juan; Roncadin, Caroline
Journal of Experimental Child Psychology, v70 n3 p143-66 Sep 1998
Used multigroup scaling models to separate the contributions of cognitive style from ability in school-age children's performance on Figural Intersection Test. Results showed that field-dependent children had greater odds of success than field-independent children when the task's mental-attentional demand was above the child's mental-attentional capacity. Field-dependent children had lower estimates of mental-attentional capacity than field-independent children. (Author/KB)
