A Developmental Analysis of the Formation and Use of Conceptual Categories
Turgeon, Valerie F.; Hill, Suzanne D.
Journal of Experimental Child Psychology, 23, 1, 108-116, Feb 77
A sorting task was used to define concepts held by 120 children (4, 5, and 18 years old) as available and nonavailable. These concepts were then used at the appropriate age levels in a discrimination-learning task. After learning the discrimination, either a reversal or half-reversal shift was required. (MS)
