유아증언의 신뢰성 연구
The credibility of child testimony
Jae Yeon Kim,Jae Yeon Lee
This study investigated differences between the ability of children and young adults to describe their experience. Forty 5-year-olds and 40 16-year-olds viewed 12 pictures(Azmitia, 1987) and responded to open-ended, closed and misleading questions. Responses were categorized by the SPSS WIN program into rate of correctness, incorrectness, unresponsiveness and "don`t know". Data were analyzed by t-test. On open-ended questions, the rate of incorrectness by young adults was higher than that of children. On closed questions, children had a higher rate of incorrectness than young adults. On misleading questions, children showed a lower performance in the rate of correctness and "don`t know" and the rate of incorrectness by children was higher than that of young adults.
