Effect of Age, Skill, and Performance Feedback on Children's Judgments of Confidence.
Newman, Richard S.; Wick, Patricia L.
Journal of Educational Psychology, v79 n2 p115-19 Jun 1987
Children's judgments of confidence were examined following performance on a cognitive task as a function of age and skill and the presence or absence of feedback. Results suggest that domain-specific knowledge, in conjunction with feedback, may help young children compensate for developmental factors associated with an unrealistically high degree of confidence.
