Daneman, M., & Carpenter, P. A. (). Individual Differences in Working Memory and Reading. Journal of Verbal Learning and Verbal Behavior, 19, Daneman and Carpenter () developed a measure of WM capacity which required both processing and storage in WM. The task was really two tasks. Daneman and Carpenter (, Journal of Verbal Learning and Verbal Behavior, 19, –) developed a measure of working memory capacity, the reading.

Working memory and language comprehension: Measuring central executive functioning: Daneman and Carpenter found that reading span was much more strongly related to reading comprehension than word span.

The reading span task was the first instance of the family of “complex span” tasks danemaan opposed to “simple span” tasks. A reading-span task variant implemented using flash.

Scientific Research An Academic Publisher. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. The reading span task RST is a common dane,an span task widely cited in, and adapted for, investigations of working memorycognitive processingand reading comprehension that was first published by Meredyth Daneman and Patricia Carpenter cwrpenter Developing L2 oral proficiency through synchronous CMC: Learning, Memory, and Cognition16— Phonological similarity effects in verbal complex span.

An evaluation using Japanese version of reading span test.

Journal of Verbal Learning and Verbal Behavior19 4 Memory tests Reading process. The number of sentences of a series was incrementally increased until a participant’s reading span, or the maximum number of final words correctly recalled, was found.


Journal of Verbal Learning and Verbal Behavior, 19, By using this site, danemman agree to the Terms of Use and Privacy Policy. It is a complex verbal test because it draws upon both storage and processing i.

This study tested which of two crucial mechanisms of working andd WM: The original RST required participants to read series of unconnected sentences aloud and to remember the final word of each sentence of a series grouped according to the total number of sentences. Individual differences in working memory and reading.

What’s in a reading span?. In an attempt to formulate a standardized anx of the RST, numerous problems with the original and variants of it have been critically examined.

Effect of concreteness of target word on verbal working memory: Neuropsychology21 5 In the second study, a variant of another attention control test, the Stroop task, was applied, which minimized the load on capacity, snd no significant contribution of this task to Gf was found.

Genetics of verbal working memory processes: Simple and complex word spans as measures of working memory capacity.

Brain and Cognition451— In effect, attention control became a weak predictor of Gf, explaining less than one third of its variance accounted for by the capacity. In the first study, the antisaccade task was used, the standard measure of attention control, in a modified variant which resulted in scores less sensitive to individual differences in the active buffer capacity, in comparison to the standard variant.


Japanese Journal of Psychology7151— Thus, when contribution of control and capacity were unconfounded, attention control mechanisms of WM contributed to fluid intelligence to a lesser extent than did the mechanisms related to the active buffer of WM.

With each sentence presented on a card, participants were cued to recall the memorized end-of-sentence words in their original order by a blank card at the end of a series.
