Zandi, Taher; Gregory, Monica E.
Educational Gerontology, v14 n3 p203-10 1988
Assessed age differences in making inferences from prose. Older adults correctly answered mean of 10 questions related to implicit information and 8 related to explicit information. Young adults answered mean of 7 implicit and 12 explicit information questions. In spite of poorer recall of factual details, older subjects made inferences to greater extent than did young adults.
