The present study was carried on to examine whether immediate memory span varied in terms of ages.196 students aged 11-16 studying at six and eleven grades participated in the experiment where they have presented three lists of numbers containing ten numbers each verbally one after another with five minutes intervals among each of the lists. Written recalls from the subjects were received after each number of the list had been presented. A two-tail t-test found significant differences between the immediate memory span of the six and eleven-grade students. Furthermore, some differences in cognitive behavior such as in recalling the larger size of numbers were observed among the two groups. Factors that facilitated immediate memory span were discussed.
