A Developmental Perspective on Order and Learning: Temporal Effects on Cued Attention


The two experiments in this paper provide evidence for order effects obtained from adult and child populations. Experiment 1 compares different versions of base-rate and canonical highlighting tasks investigating the differences between visual processing of cues and inference based knowledge. Comparisons based on adults’ individual performance are also addressed. Experiment 2 implements designs from Experiment 1 to investigate the nature of order effects on children ages 4-5-years-old.
