"No Two Fields Ever Grow Grass the Same Way": Assessment of Conservation Abilities in the Elderly.
Roberts, Pamela; And Others
International Journal of Aging and Human Development, v15 n3 p185-95 1982
Examines several possible difficulties in interpreting the results of studies which employ Piagetian tasks, especially conservation tasks, with older individuals. Notes that Piaget's clinical method allows more flexibility in the assessment of competence than do more quantifiable techniques. Examines the possibility of task misinterpretation by the elderly.
