Bidimensional Sorting in Preschoolers with an Instrumental Learning Task.
Watson, John S.; And Others
Child Development, v50 n4 p1178-83 Dec 1979
Seventy-four lower- and middle-class children aged 2 1/2, 3 1/2, and 4 1/2 years, who were successful at unidimensional sorting of two objects by either color or form, were given feedback for correct bidimensional sorting of three objects, two of which had been used in unidimensional testing. Results indicate that Piagetian centration is a task- or situation-specific phenomenon. (RH)
