The Effect Sight Copying Has on Symbol Productivity of Boys and Girls.
Klein, Howard A.
An exploratory study was designed to determine the amount and accuracy of symbol output that may occur in a fixed time when elementary school children are asked to copy from a page they have neither seen before nor will be given a chance to study. For two minutes, a total of 194 fourth, sixth, and eighth grade students copied an unfamiliar prose passage. The statistical differences between the means of each grade favored the higher grades for symbol output. The pattern that emerged for accuracy showed that sixth grade children made the fewest errors. At each grade level, girls were superior to boys in production and accuracy. (RL)
