The Anticipation of Conservation Phenomenon: Conservation or Pseudoconservation.
Acredolo, Curt; Acredolo, Linda P.
Child Development, v51 n3 p667-75 Sep 1980
Tests Piaget's assertion that the anticipation of conservation among otherwise nonconserving children is a pseudoconservation since it is limited to those lacking knowledge of covariation. Number, area, and length conservation tasks and a covariation task were given to 96 children from kindergarten through the fifth grade. (Author/SS)
