By evaluating specific types of errors RESULT: Substitutions are made with letters that sound the same even when letters are presented visually INFERENCE: Working memory is limited in how many letter names can be held temporarily INFERENCE: The letters are coded in verbal form

3. RELATIONSHIP OF the phonological buffer capacity to various tasks HOW? Use concurrent vocalization (e.g., “tah, tah, tah”) when letters are presented visually RESULTS: 1. Reduces letter span 2. Has no negative effect on problem solving 3. Has no negative effect on memory
