ZORTEA, Maxciel; JOU, Graciela Inchausti de  and  SALLES, Jerusa Fumagalli de. Metamemory experimental task to evaluate memory monitoring and control. Psico-USF [online]. 2014, vol.19, n.2, pp.329-344. ISSN 2175-3563.

Experimental tasks for the assessment of monitoring and control memory processes allow the online exam of these abilities. In the national field these tasks still need to be elaborated in order to facilitate and stimulate future research projects. This article presents the steps for the elaboration of a task for examining memory monitoring and control processes. In Study 1 we describe the selection of 100 stimuli (cue-target word pairs) and its psycholinguistic aspects. Study 2 presents data of a pilot-study of the task with ten adults, focusing on the evaluation of monitoring processes. In Study 3 we show data of monitoring and control processes of a pilot-study with 12 undergraduate students as well as a clinical case of stroke and two neurologically unimpaired elderly people. Results suggest the need of two different versions of the task for different populations, which would allow enough variance within and between participants. In addition, other preliminary findings relevant for current metamemory hypothesis are presented.
