In this ongoing project we investigate the test-retest reliability of the preferences measures used in ManyBabies1. Participating labs will bring in the tested babies for a second appointment retesting infants’ IDS preference looking time measure, allowing to compare test-retest reliability for three different methods that have been used to investigate preferential listening in infancy: The head-turn preference procedure, central fixation, and eye tracking.
