Meyer, William J.; And Others
The following research projects are described in this annual report: (1) "Concept Learning in Discrimination Tasks," which indicates that kindergarten children are able to discriminate the letters "b,""d,""p," and "q"; (2) "Discrimination of Letter-like Forms," indicating that nursery school children discriminate as well as second graders in brief but appropriate experiences; (3) "Presence of an Attached Peer and Security in a Novel Environment," which supports the hypothesis that proximity of a peer friend has a distress inhibiting or security inducing effect on children which is greater than that afforded by proximity to a strange peer; (4) "Kindergarten 'Learning to Learn' Program Evaluation," a study of alternative learning situations for effects on young children's development; (5) "Changes in Stanford-Binet IQ Performance vs. Competence," which contends that instead of concentrating on IQ gains in evaluating preschool programs, investigators should study characteristics of children as they interact with characteristics of the program; (6) "The Adaptive Behavior Rating Scale," indicating that crucial adaptive behaviors, as defined by preschool teachers, involve social competency and compliance; and (7) "Dissemination Activities."
