The Ability to Conserve Quantity of Liquid and Its Relationship to Socio-Economic Background, Intelligence, and Achievement Among Selected Fourth Grade Pupils.
Bozarth, James Oliver
Studied were the relationships between children's attainment of the concept of conservation of liquid and certain student characteristics. Student factors investigated were socio-economic background (high and low), status levels (conservers and non-conservers), verbal and non-verbal achievement, and science achievement. Classification of subjects by status produced significant differences in favor of conservers, and by socio-economic level (high and low) produced significant differences in favor of high on the intelligence and achievement tests used.
