A Cross-Sectional Study of Cognitive Variables.
Grippin, Pauline; And Others
Students in grades K, 1, 3, and 5 were administered the Rod and Frame Test (RFT), the Matching Familiar Figures (MFF) Test, and the Piagetian tasks of Discontinuous Quantity, Class Inclusion, Multiplication of Classes, and Multiplication of Relations. Cross-sectional trends were found in all tasks with older children being less impulsive, more field independent, and more able to correctly perform the Piagetian tasks. In spite of similarities among the tasks with regard to perceptual salience of cues, ambiguity of stimulus situation, and problem solving set, performance on the tasks was independent over age. Also unreflected in these data is the synchronous development of class inclusion, multiplication of classes, and multiplication of relations reported by Inhelder and Piaget (1964). Findings are discussed in light of the Kagan and Kagan (1970) differentiation and integration of cognitive development. (Author/CS)
