Developmental Differences in the Use of Retrieval Cues to Describe Episodic Information in Memory.
Ackerman, Brian P.; Rathburn, Jill
Journal of Experimental Child Psychology, v38 n1 p147-73 Aug 1984
Examines reasons why second and fourth grade students use cues relatively ineffectively to retrieve episodic information. Four experiments tested the hypothesis that retrieval cue effectiveness varies with the extent to which cue information describes event information in memory. Results showed that problems of discriminability and constructability contribute to developmental differences in the use of retrieval cues. (Author/RH)
