Bray, Norman W.; Huffman, Lisa F.; Fletcher, Kathryn L.
Developmental Psychology, v35 n5 p1223-36 Sep 1999
Investigated external memory strategies of typical 7-, 9-, 11-, and 17-year olds and 11- and 17-year olds with mild mental retardation using tasks allowing direct comparison of self-report and strategy observed. Found strong positive correlations between frequency of reported and observed strategy use. Self-reports were accurate but not always complete. Children were less likely to report strategies not related to recall. (Author/KB)
