Psychology - Extra Credit Paper, Article

Extra Credit Paper in Child Psychology (Spring 2017): Young Children’s Ability to Predict Their Recall You can add up to 4 percentage points to your average for the course by completing this extra credit assignment. It is due by Thursday, April 27 (5:00 PM). Only hard copies will be accepted (i.e., no email attachments). 1. On Blackboard Learn, I have posted an article from the Journal of Experimental Child Psychology. It reports an investigation of preschoolers’ unrealistic predictions about how well they will remember things. 2. Read the article, then write a paper in which you do the following: a. Describe one previous study showing that children’s predictions about their memory performance tend to become more accurate with age. b. Describe one previous study showing the same thing for physical task performance. c. Describe the evidence that children’s overestimation of memory performance may have a different explanation than children’s overestimation of physical performance. d. Describe the two explanations for young children’s overestimation of their memory performance that were tested in the current investigation. e. Explain why the findings of the experiment are more consistent with one explanation than with the other. f. Describe the evidence from the current study that children don’t simply predict that they will recall the same number in their second recall attempt as they actually recalled in their first attempt. (Calculate averages over the trial means in Table 1, and compare these averages.) g. Describe the “memory-for-past-test heuristic”, and the evidence in the current study that preschoolers do not use this heuristic, at least not consistently, when making a second recall prediction. h. Look up the phenomenon of “spontaneous recovery in human memory” in Wikipedia or a psychology text. Do many preschoolers appear to believe that their own memory shows spontaneous recovery? Justify your answer based on the results of the current study. i. Describe one advantage (mentioned in the article) and one disadvantage (not mentioned in the article) of having a tendency to overestimate how well one will do on a cognitive test. Why might the advantage outweigh the disadvantage for young children, but not for older children or adults? 3. Details of the assignment a. The paper should be typed, double-spaced with one inch margins on all sides. b. There is no minimum or maximum word length. Answer each question without leaving any important information out or putting any irrelevant information in. c. Put your name and a title for the paper at the top of the first page. Do not include a reference page at the end of the paper. d. Do not use too many verbatim excerpts from the article. Summarize in your own words. Whenever you do include a verbatim excerpt, even a sentence fragment, put quotation marks around it and cite the source. If the source is the article, just put (Lipko-Speed, 2013) after the excerpt.
