Pure Short-Term Memory Capacity Has Implications for Understanding Individual Differences in Math Skills
Behavioral and Brain Sciences
Future work is needed to establish that pure short-term memory is a coherent individual difference attribute that is separable from traditional compound short-term memory measures. Psychometric support for latent pure short-term memory capacity will provide an important starting point for future fine-grained analyses of the intrinsic factors that influence individual differences in math skills.
