The Two Intelligences of Bright, Average, and Retarded Children.
DeVries, Rheta
This study attempted to determine if performance on Piagetian tasks can be predicted from Stanford-Binet mental age or IQ. Subjects were 143 children of bright, average, and retarded abilities as measured by performance on the Stanford-Binet Intelligence Test. Bright and average children were chronologically aged five to seven years; retarded children were mentally aged five to seven and chronologically aged six to twelve. Fifteen Piaget-type tasks were individually administered in three sessions. Results showed that (1) children of higher IQ develop through Piagetian stages faster than children of lower IQ, and (2) prior to the period of concrete operations, high-IQ children tend to think in a more preoperational way than older children of the same mental age but lower IQ. Conclusions were that psychometric tests and Piagetian tasks seem to reflect two kinds of intelligence, and that experience is an important factor in the development of Piagetian intelligence. For another analysis of these data, see SE 016 418. (DT)
