Developmental Changes in Children's Abilities To Share and Allocate Attention in a Dual Task.
Irwin-Chase, Holly; Burns, Barbara
Journal of Experimental Child Psychology, v77 n1 p61-85 Sep 2000
Two experiments examined age differences in children's dual-task performance. Findings indicated that when capacity for single-task performance was controlled, age differences between second and fifth graders did not exist in performance of dual-tasks of equal priority. When tasks had different priorities, only fifth graders could differentially allocate attention in the dual task. (Author/KB)
