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.

Neuropsychology21 5 The reading span task was the first instance of the family of “complex span” tasks as opposed to “simple span” tasks.


It is a complex verbal test because it draws upon both storage and processing i. Scientific Research An Academic Publisher. The original RST required participants to read series ddaneman unconnected sentences aloud and to remember the final word of each sentence of a series grouped according to the total number of sentences. Journal of Verbal Learning and Verbal 19019 4 This study tested which of two crucial mechanisms of working memory WM: The reading span task RST is a common memory 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 in Working memory and language comprehension: Memory tests Reading process.

Brain and Cognition451— 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.

Learning, Memory, and Cognition16— Genetics of verbal working memory processes: In an attempt to formulate a standardized version of the RST, numerous problems with the original and variants of it have been critically examined. Journal of Verbal Learning and Verbal Behavior, 19, From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

In effect, attention control became a weak predictor of Gf, explaining less than one third of its variance accounted for by the capacity.

Later carepnter corroborated the finding that reading span is more closely related to language comprehension than word span. What’s in a reading span?. 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.

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 danneman. European Journal of Psychological Assessment. A twin study of middle-aged men. 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. Daneman and Carpenter found that reading span was much more strongly related to reading comprehension than word span.
