Children's Understanding of Implied Motion Cues.
Saiet, Ronald A.
This experimental study was conducted in an attempt to determine how children--four, seven, and 11 years old--perceive implied motion cues in combination with a variety of objects. Ninety children, 30 in each age group, were shown 24 pictures. There were three kinds of objects, each with an inherent active and static dimension. Each of these six pictures appeared with one of three motion cues, and alone. The number of each of the picture styles identified as moving by each subject was determined. An age x object x activity x motion cues repeated measures ANOVA was used to evaluate the data. All main effects and all interactions were significant. It was concluded that children at different stages of development differ in their interpretation of certain graphic conventions. A list of references is attached. (Author/RAO)
