Inducing Stage III Seriation Capabilities in Kindergarten Children Through Cue Fading and Reinforcement.
Schafer, Larry Eugene
The effectiveness of using cue fading and reinforcement to instruct children for performance at Piaget's seriation stage III was investigated. Thirty-four kindergarten children were divided into two groups, with the experimental group given training to induce the ability to insert objects into an ordered set of objects. Posttests consisting of both near and far transfer measures were given one, eight, and 132 days after training. Results showed that the experimental subjects acquired and retained the specific target capabilities of the training but failed to transfer those capabilities to tasks involving new materials.
