Abstract
This study aims to compare the psychometric properties of recognition and
recall task measurements and to examine their relationships with other
higher-order thinking skills. Memory measurements made with recognition
and recall tasks were based on the Visual Span Memory (VSM) subtest of the
ASIS intelligence scale. The participants of the study consisted of 228 students
attending first and second grade in a primary school in the city center of
Eskisehir. The data were collected by administering the recognition and recall
task forms to the students individually. The findings reveal a statistically significant difference between the average scores of recall and recognition tasks.
The mean scores of the recognition task measurements are significantly
higher than the mean scores of the recall task measurements (t(227) = 5.79,
p<0.01; Cohen d = 0.435, Cohen dz = 0.38). In addition, there is a significant
difference between the reliability coefficients of recognition and recall task
score in favor of the recall task score (χ2
(1) = 6.181, p <.02). It was also found
that the mean item-total correlations of the recall task measurements (r=.41)
were higher than the recognition task measurements (r=.27), and the itemtotal correlations of the six items differed significantly in favor of the recall
task measurements. The correlation of the recall task score with the other 5
subtests in the ASIS intelligence scale was higher than that of the recognition
task score. The findings show that the psychometric properties of the measurement performed with the recall task are stronger.

Key words: working memory assessment, memory tasks, recall, recognition
