Factors Affecting Feedback Effectiveness for Reducing Eyewitness Suggestibility

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



Abstract:

In two experiments, we explored factors affecting a person’s ability to use feedback to improve memory accuracy. Participants viewed an eyewitness event, answered a questionnaire that included misinformation, and completed a source test. Part of the test provided feedback concerning the correct source of an item. Although feedback dramatically improved accuracy on subsequent items, working memory capacity did not moderate this improvement (WMC did affect overall accuracy). Instead, our findings suggest that the amount of negative feedback received and the clarity of memory for the original event play an important role in feedback effectiveness. We discuss implications for real-world eyewitnesses.
