Distinctiveness Effects in Children's Long-Term Retention.
Howe, Mark L.; Courage, Mary L.; Vernescu, Roxana; Hunt, Melvine
Developmental Psychology, v36 n6 p778-92 Nov 2000
Three experiments examined kindergartners' and second graders' retention in the context of two distinctiveness manipulations, the von Restorff and bizarre imagery paradigms. Results showed that: older children retained more information from lists of pictures or interactive images over 3 weeks than younger; younger children failed to benefit from numerically distinct information; and distinctiveness in other domains facilitated children's retention.
