Abstract: We examined eyewitness confidence/accuracy using verbal expressions and quantitative measures of confidence for a lineup identification task. Fifty-two adults witnessed a staged crime and viewed a sequential eight person lineup. Lineup composition (target absent versus present) varied across witnesses. After making an identification, witnesses stated their confidence using their own words and a 10-point Likert-type scale. Three pairs of individuals (lawyers, police officers, and students) served as independent raters and assessed the oral statements using the same confidence scale. A significant positive relationship between self-rated confidence and accuracy emerged but the rater confidence and accuracy correlation failed to reach significance.
