Weinert, F. E.; Helmke, A.
Learning and Instruction, v8 n4 p309-23 Aug 1998
Two studies involving approximately 200 children aged 4 to 12 years show the expected increases in the level of cognitive competencies but show that these increases are not universal. Large inter- and intraindividual differences are found for various types of memory tasks as well as for different domains of scholastic achievement. (SLD)
