Effects of Instructional Intervention on Performance of Second Grade Children in a Categorization Game. Report from the Project on Situational Variables and Efficiency of Concept Learning.
Anandalakshmy, S.; Davidson, Robert E.
Originating from an interest in the language-cognition relationship as reflected in the cognitive abilities of children, this study was planned to examine the differing theoretical implications of Piaget and Vygotsky regarding categorization. The instrument designed for this study, the Question Game, based on the game of Twenty Questions, was made up of a set of 32 objects, carefully selected on the basis of their potential for hierarchical classification. The responses of the Ss were recorded and four types of categories were identified: Nominal, Taxonomic, Functional and Descriptive. (Author)
