Developmental change in the relation between simple and complex span: A meta-analysis
Department of Psychology, Stockholm University.
2011 (English)In: Developmental Psychology, ISSN 0012-1649, E-ISSN 1939-0599, Vol. 47, no 4, 1012-1025 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

In the present meta-analysis the effects of developmental level on the correlation between simple and complex span tasks were investigated. Simple span complex span correlation coefficients presented in 52 independent samples (7,060 participants) were regressed on a variable representing mean age of sample (range: 4.96-22.80 years), using analyses adapted for meta-analytic purposes. The results showed strong positive relations between mean age of sample and simple span complex span correlation coefficients, suggesting that the relation between simple and complex span tasks became stronger with increasing age. These results could not be accounted for by study-related differences in measurement reliability, restricted range, or sample size. A new theoretical account explaining these findings is outlined.
