A task combining both digit and Corsi memory tests was administered to a group of 75 children. The task is shown to share variance with standardised reading and maths attainments, even after partialling out performance on component tasks separately assessed. The emergent task property may reflect co-ordination skills, although several different refinements can be made to this general conclusion.
