A STUDY OF CHILDREN'S ERROR TENDENCIES DURING LEARNING.
BERMAN, PHYLLIS W.
THE ERROR FACTORS WHICH OPERATE DURING THE DISCRIMINATION LEARNING OF NORMAL CHILDREN WERE STUDIED. THREE EXPERIMENTS WERE CONDUCTED TO COMPARE RESPONSE-SHIFT AND RESPONSE-PRESERVERATION TENDENCIES OF DIFFERENT AGE GROUPS. THE FIRST EXPERIMENT INCLUDED 4-, 6-, 8-, AND 10-YEAR-OLDS WHO WERE GIVEN REWARD AND NONREWARD PROBLEMS. THE SECOND EXPERIMENT INCLUDED 4- AND 3-YEAR-OLDS WHO WERE GIVEN EITHER 75 PERCENT REWARD AND 25 PERCENT NONREWARD PROBLEMS, OR THE REVERSE. THE THIRD EXPERIMENT INCLUDED 4-, 6-, 8-, AND 10-YEAR-OLDS WHO WERE GIVEN REWARD PROBLEMS ONLY. A LEARNING SET PROCEDURE OF TWO-TRIAL PROBLEMS AND MULTIDIMENSIONAL STIMULI WAS EMPLOYED IN THREE TREATMENTS. BOTH RESPONSE-SHIFT AND RESPONSE-PERSEVERATION TENDENCIES APPEAR TO BE IMPORTANT SOURCES OF ERROR IN CHILDREN'S DISCRIMINATION LEARNING. (RS)
