Children's Awareness of Memorability.
Worden, Patricia E.; Sladewski-Awig, Linda J.
Journal of Educational Psychology, v74 n3 p341-50 Jun 1982
Kindergarteners asked to predict which of 18 unrelated pictures they would be able to recall were shown to be as discriminating as older children at predicting memorability in a signal-detection analysis. Justifications for why items were memorable showed increased reference to item and task characteristics with increased age. (Author/CM)
