Learning To Make Good Decisions: A Self-Regulation Perspective.
Byrnes, James P.; Miller, David C.; Reynolds, Marianne
Child Development, v70 n5 p1121-40 Sep-Oct 1999
Two studies determined the extent to which feedback could improve eighth graders' and adults' decision-making. Results showed that neither benefited from verbal feedback in choosing between easy and hard questions to earn points. Adults benefited more than adolescents from outcome feedback. Adults also benefited more than adolescents in context of medical decision-making task. Intelligence was unrelated to performance. (Author/KB)
