Paas, Fred; Camp, Gino; Rikers, Remy
Journal of Educational Psychology, v93 n1 p181-86 Mar 2001
Investigates differential effects of goal specificity on maze learning among 40 young and 40 old adults. Results confirmed hypotheses that the presence or absence of a specific goal would disproportionately compromise or enhance, respectively, elderly people's performance. Suggests that instruction based on cognitive load theory can compensate for age-related cognitive declines. (Contains 37 references and 1 table.) (GCP)
