A Regression Model for Selection of Games to Enhance Problem Solving and Personality Skills in Young Children.
Kennedy, Beth T.; McGinty, John
This study reports the results of research on analyses of game difficulty. Predictor variables were number of rules, spaces, and pieces necessary to play a game. Criterion variables were related to the child's ability to play successfully, and numbered eight. Data were subjected to multiple regression analysis, leading to the conclusion that it is feasible to predict the appropriateness of a game for providing practice in specific skill areas from physical descriptors of the game.
