O'Sullivan, Julia T.
Journal of Experimental Child Psychology, v55 n3 p396-414 Jun 1993
Two experiments investigated four year olds' beliefs about the effect of effort and performance incentives on recall and the relationship of these beliefs to memory and performance. Children accurately represented the effect of performance incentives on effort but were unrealistic about the power of effort to influence recall. (PAM)
