Abstract

114 1st, 3rd, and 5th graders were administered 4 tasks that assessed their accuracy in predicting future memory. Two tasks required recall and 2 required recognition. For each type, one version involved a word list, the other a sentence list. As expected, accuracy at predicting recall performance improved across grades, but accuracy to predicting recognition did not. Examination of Ss' predictions revealed that there was no systematic differentiation of task difficulty. (8 ref) (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2006 APA, all rights reserved).
