Concrete Operational Development and Arithmetic Progress in Learning Disabled Boys: A Cross-Lagged Panel Analysis.
Krakow, Joanne; Curcio, Frank
Cross-lagged panel analysis was used to determine the causal relationship between arithmetic progress and two factors (concrete operational development and visuo-spatial figurative ability) in 28 learning disabled boys (9-12 years old). Results of seven operational tasks, five figurative tests, and a diagnostic arithmetic test administered early and late in the year indicated that concrete operational level early in the year predicted arithmetic progress during the year. Figurative ability early in the year was not causally related to arithmetic progress. Findings suggested that fostering the development of concrete operational skills may constitute an effective form of intervention. (CL)
