They found that children were more likely to change a response to an unanswerable question than to a question to which they know the answer. Generally, children upheld the same answers to only three quarters of the repeated questions. The most common pattern of change was for children to change their answer the second time a question was asked and then to uphold that answer when the question was repeated. This study shows that repetition can have a negative effect on a child’s eyewitness testimony, and therefore making the use of children’s eyewitness accounts of criminal activity ineffective. However, these studies may not be accurate in proving how these factors affect children’s eyewitness accounts because they lack ecological validity.
If their own means achieved the desired goal, they would be less likely to adopt the precise means used by the model. If they were unable to perform the goal through their own means, or had a difficult time, they would be more apt to imitate someone else's successful attempt. The study was performed in a laboratory setting with an empirical and quantitative methodology. The participants were three-year-old children that were chosen from a university preschool. The children were chosen solely for their age.
Based on completed questionnaires, parent participation was 50% (p. 560). The results illustrate a total of four children ages (6- 36 months) whose ethnic backgrounds were Caucasian (2) (male, female) Asian American (1) (female) Southeast Asian male (1) continually reached for a darker doll, expressing the results of Katz and Kofkin’s (1997) theory that babies and young children do possess a keenness for distinguishing outward appearances (p. 560). In conclusion, the title and context of the article are clear, and appropriately match the hypothesis of the authors. There is consistency between the objective of the experiment and its relationship to science. This writer found some issues in the overall presentation of information, in that the text lacks smooth transition, and was difficult to read and follow.
The researchers proposed that the children be exposed to adult models with either aggressive or nonaggressive ways, they would then be tested without the models present to determine if they would imitate that aggression they observed in the adult. The participants in this study included a total of 36 boys and 36 girls ranging in age from 3 years to almost 6 years. The average age of the children was 4 years, and 4 months. The control group consisted of 24 children, who would not be exposed to any model. The rest of the 48 children were divided into two groups: one group was exposed to aggressive models and the other group was exposed to nonaggressive models.
The remaining 25 children were in the control group, which received no intervention. The intervention consisted of the SST and AST programs. These programs were designed to facilitate social problem solving, role-playing, and modeling of appropriate social behavior. The children were given the treatment in the form of games much like Monopoly. Moderate gains in social skills and a decrease in problem behavior were found in the group of thirteen children who received the 6-week intervention when compared to the control group.
One group had Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), another group had developmental delays (DD) but autism was ruled out, and the third group had a typical development (TD). They conducted a study in which they videotaped some behavioral samples using the Communication and Symbolic Behavior Scales Developmental Profile (CSBS). This is a clinical tool that is used to measure repetitive and stereotyped movements (RSM) in young children. The experiment takes about twenty minutes to administer and uses communication techniques such as bubbles, different toys, cheerios, books, and other activities to promote communication is the children. Study 2 Luyster, Rhiannon J., Kadlec, Mary Beth, Carter, Alice, Tager-Flusberg, Helen (2008) Language Assessment and Development in Toddlers with Autism Spectrum Disorders Participants were based on ages of 18 to 33 months and were picked from collaboration with early intervention in Massachusetts.
Some children were excluded from the experiment for reasons ranging from experimenter errors to participants not being able to cooperate and learn what the experimenter was teaching them in order to participate. The procedure of the first experiment involved labeling boxes with letters (from A-E) and teaching the participants the letter names that corresponded to each box. The boxes were arranged sequentially A-E and then their order was reversed for the second matching row of boxes containing the identical stimulus expect they were arranged backwards ... ... middle of paper ... .... Another finding of this study that is noteworthy is that the Israeli four-year-olds possessed a greater likelihood to use a letter matching method than the younger Israeli children or either age group of the American children. This was attested to the Israeli’s preparatory kindergarten course offered for children before the age of 5 in which children are required to enroll into kindergarten. The requirements for American children to enroll in kindergarten were much less stringent.
It is when something has been previously seen or heard. Face perception during early infancy (Article 7) by Mondloch, Lewis, Budreau, Maurer, Dannemiller, Stephens, and Gathercoal does a great job explaining young infants face perception and recognition. In this article, the researchers decided to conduct an experiment on newborns, 6-week-olds, and 12-week-olds. They used a standardized method, which was called the Teller Acuity card procedure. This procedure was when an observer did not know what was presented each trial and tried to see if the infants preferred one of the stimuli, or cards, over another.
The subjects who will be studied in this experiment are 200 children between the ages of 8-12 years of age. Researchers just based the subjects of this experiment on the age of the subjects and gender.

It can be inferred that the female subjects took longer to process the charts because it would help with them getting it correct. These results were very surprising because it would seem that the children with dyslexia would have a lower accuracy but it was the females with or without that got a higher percentage of them correct.
Traditionally, children were assumed to confuse the boundaries between them. Yet, previous research has shown that three year olds are able to make reality/non-reality distinctions. The first article, published in 2004 describes a study performed by Sharon & Woolley. They hoped to provide a new viewpoint at a preschooler's level of fantasy/reality differentiation. They believed that children have a better understanding of these boundaries than most people assume.
