Children's reports of a personally experienced event: The effect of event frequency, modality, and prompt specificity on accuracy and language

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

The current study examined the influence of event frequency, modality, and interview prompt specificity on accuracy and language used when describing an event. One hundred twenty-five children (Mage = 7.22 years, SD = 0.63 years) either read a story about a magician or watched a live magic show, which occurred one, four, or six times. Children in the single-event condition provided more correct responses about the magic story/show than children in the repeat-event conditions. However, report accuracy and specificity varied as a function of interview prompt for repeat-event children but not single-event children. Implications for interviewing child witnesses are discussed.
