Children's Metamemory about the Influence of Conceptual Relations on Recall.
O'Sullivan, Julia T.
Journal of Experimental Child Psychology, v62 n1 p1-29 Jun 1996
Examined differences in first-, third-, and fifth-graders' metamemory about influences of conceptual relations on free recall of a list of words from two categories and an unrelated list. Found that older children attributed superior recall of related material to categorical relations, reported categorical organization strategies, and demonstrated increasing awareness of facilitative effects of conceptual relations on cognitive effort.
