Cultural and Gender Differences in Spatial Ability of Young Children.
Seng, Alice Seok Hoon; Tan, Lee Choo
This study reports on cultural and gender differences in the spatial abilities of children based on the Water Level Task. The Piagetian theory of age-related developmental differences in performance on the Water Level Task was explored with Chinese and Malay children living in Singapore. Results indicate that children in this study did not perform as well as those described in the Piagetian developmental stage. There was a significant difference in the performance of Chinese and Malay children with Chinese children performing better than Malay children. At all grade levels, boys had higher proportions of correct scores than girls; however, differences were not statistically significant. (KHR)
