Time Estimation in Young Children: An Initial Force Rule Governing Time Production.
Droit-Volet, Sylvie
Journal of Experimental Child Psychology, v68 n3 p236-49 Mar 1998
Studied time estimation for a button-pressing response in 3- and 5.5-year-olds under "minimal,""temporal," and "force" instructions. Found that force--but not temporal--instructions improved 3-year-olds' timing accuracy. When instructed to press harder, they pressed longer. Older children were more accurate with temporal than with force instructions and when asked to press harder, did not press longer. (Author)
