Resumen


Esta investigación analizó los mecanismos cognitivos subyacentes al rendimiento aritmético en el 4º curso de Educación Primaria. Con este fin se evaluó, a través de las pruebas de dígitos del WISC-R, y de las escalas correspondientes de las baterías D.N:CAS y BANEVHAR, el rendimiento en memoria verbal, velocidad de procesamiento, planificación, atención, procesamiento simultáneo y sucesivo y competencia numérica de 74 alumnos. Los análisis correlacionales mostraron que todas las variables seleccionadas, salvo la planificación, se relacionaron significativamente con el rendimiento aritmético. El simultáneo y el procesamiento numérico emergieron, en el análisis de regresión jerárquico realizado, como predictores del rendimiento aritmético.
