Conservation without Conversation? An Alternative, Non-Verbal Paradigm for Assessing Conservation of Liquid Quantity.
Wheldall, Kevin; Poborca, Barbara
British Journal of Psychology, v71 pt1 p117-134 Feb 1980
A nonverbal paradigm for assessing conservation based on an operant discrimination learning procedure is described. Initial results suggest that young children who could not conserve within the traditional verbal procedure were more likely to demonstrate conservation within the nonverbal paradigm and that traditional Piagetian tasks are verbally biased.
