  1. Children's strategies in computational estimation
    Author(s) unavailable

    Journal of Experimental Child Psychology 2012

    We investigated strategies used to estimate answers to addition problems. Two hundred and sixteen participants (72 adults, 72 sixth graders, and 72 fourth graders) had to provide estimates of three-by-three digit addition problems (e.g., 249+743). The choice/no-choice method was used to obtain unbias...
  2. Orthographic learning during reading: examining the role of self-teaching
    Author(s) unavailable

    Journal of Experimental Child Psychology 2012

    We obtained a substantial correlation (r=.52) between orthographic learning and the number of target homophones correctly decoded during story reading. Hierarchical multiple regression analyses indicated that neither RAN tasks nor general cognitive ability predicted variance in orthographic learning...
  3. Prenatal Substance Exposure and Child Self-Regulation: Pathways to Risk and Protection

    Journal of Experimental Child Psychology (2011)

    • Cocaine using mothers exhibited more harshness during interactions with their toddlers. • Higher maternal harshness was prospectively associated with lower effortful...
  4. Developmental changes and the effect of self-generated feedback in metacognitive controlled spacing strategies in 7-year-olds, 10-year-olds,...

    Journal of Experimental Child Psychology 132:140 (2015)

    We used a spacing paradigm to investigate metacognitive based control in learning. • We looked at the effect of self-generated feedback on future monitoring and control. • Alre...
  5. The role of rapid naming in reading development and dyslexia in Chinese.

    Journal of Experimental Child Psychology 130:106 (2015) PMID 25462035

    We examined in a series of studies the mechanism that may underlie the relationship between Rapid Automatized Naming (RAN) and reading (accuracy and fluency) in Mandarin Chinese. Study 1 examined the "arbitrary" connections hypothesis in a sample of Grade 2 children (N=182). Study 2 contrasted the p...
  6. The roles of liar intention, lie content, and theory of mind in children’s evaluation of lies

    Journal of Experimental Child Psychology 132:1 (2015)

    • Children evaluate prosocial lies less negatively than selfish lies (intention). • Children evaluate lies about opinions less negatively than lies about facts (conten...
  7. Adults with siblings like children's faces more than those without.

    Journal of Experimental Child Psychology 129:148 (2015) PMID 25311545 PMCID PMC4252754

    We do not know whether experience with young children during social development might act to further facilitate this. Here we investigated the potential impact of having siblings on adult likeability judgments of children's faces. In this study, 73 adult men and women (40 with siblings and 33 withou...
  8. Is popularity associated with aggression toward socially preferred or marginalized targets?

    Journal of Experimental Child Psychology 124:112 (2014) PMID 24780299

    We tested two alternative hypotheses with a sample of 224 adolescents (12- and 13-year-olds): (a) whether aggression toward highly disliked peers is associated with popularity (the easy target hypothesis) or (b) whether aggression toward highly liked peers is associated with popularity (the challeng...
  9. The role of social interaction and pedagogical cues for eliciting and reducing overimitation in preschoolers.

    Journal of Experimental Child Psychology 122:122 (2014) PMID 24569041

    We investigated (a) whether communication of a model performing irrelevant actions is necessary to elicit overimitation in preschoolers and (b) whether communication of another model performing an efficient action modulates the subsequent reduction of overimitation. In the study, 5-year-olds imitate...
  10. The influence of averageness on judgments of facial attractiveness: no own-age or own-sex advantage among children attending single-sex scho...

    Journal of Experimental Child Psychology 120:1 (2014) PMID 24326246

    We examined how recent biased face experience affects the influence of averageness on judgments of facial attractiveness among 8- and 9-year-old children attending a girls' school, a boys' school, and a mixed-sex school. We presented pairs of individual faces in which one face was transformed 50% to...
