7 years) located in the central and western zones of Singapore participated in the study. All pupils were functionally bilingual with the majority of children having received 7 years of schooling in English. All children were administered (1) the Working Memory Test Battery for Children (WMTB-C, Pickering & Gathercole, 2001), (2) a literacy battery, consisting of subtests from the Wechsler Objective Reading and Language Dimensions (Rust, 2000) and the vocabulary subtest of the Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children—Third Edition (WISC III, Wechsler, 1991), (3) a non-verbal IQ test (block design from the WISC-III, and (4) a mathematical test consisting of ten algebraic word problems.

33). To examine the extent to which these findings extend to school examination results, we collected data on children’s performance in Mathematics, English, and Mother Tongue at two time points: at the same time as the working-memory data were collected and eight months later. Both sets of examinations were conducted as part of normal school assessment conducted at the end of the fourth term and at the end of the second term in the following year. Compared to the algebraic word problem test, the school-based assessment was more comprehensive and contained all the material covered in the two terms prior to examination.
