Department of Psychology
Abstract
The purpose of the study was to examine differences in the accuracy of voice identification tasks between an experimental group (N = 56) consisting of security personal, and a control group (N = 44). In addition, calibration methodology was employed in order to examine if the experimental group exhibited a higher confidence level in their identifications than the control group. No significant differences between the two groups were found on voice identification tasks, nor were any significant differences in realism of confidence between the two groups established.

Key words: Earwitness, Voice identification, Face Identification, Calibration, Confidence, Witness-psychology, Formal training, Informal training.
