The primacy effect in young children verbal fact or spatial artifact

Child Development 47(1): 242-247
The primacy effect in young children verbal fact or spatial artifact
Children, 5-7 yr old, were tested in a serial position recall task under 2 conditions. In 1 condition, which replicated the procedure typically used, the spatial and temporal components were completely confounded; in the other, the spatial and temporal components were experimentally separated. The spatial component of the typical serial position recall task, rather than the use of rehearsal, was largely responsible for the primacy effect found in the serial position curves of young children.
