A Study of Reflection-Impulsivity in the Play of Preschool Children.
Steele, Connie; Asher, Rita
This study was designed to determine the relationship between children's reflection-impulsivity and responses to a forced choice of a toy for play (labelled as impulsivity) and the length of continued play with the selected toy (labelled as latency). A group of twenty four-year-olds, male and female, were observed making a choice between toys. The length of time required for choice and length of continued play were observed. The Kansas Reflection-Impulsivity Scale for Preschoolers (KRISP) test, consisting of five match-to-sample practice items followed by ten test items, was administered to the children. Comparison of the KRISP latency-to-errors scores by the sample in this study reflected a negative correlation of -.197. Results of this project are illustrated by tables and graphs and an analysis is presented. (JD)
