DARCEE Papers and Reports (George Peabody College for Teachers), v4 n10 1970
A total of 28 advantaged and 28 disadvantaged 5-year-old children who had been tested in a previous study designed to measure some of the skills and characteristics thought to be related to academic success (ED 032 929) were retested after a 6-month interval during which they had had a preschool experience. Two measures of object exploratory behavior, one of ability to inhibit motor behavior under verbal and modeled request and one of impulsivity-reflectivity were used. Stimulus rather than subject characteristics seemed to account for object exploratory behavior. Reflectivity was found to increase with age. (Author/AJ)
