Stone, C. Addison; Forman, Ellice A.
Journal of Special Education, v22 n2 p167-85 Sum 1988
Learning-disabled ninth-graders (n=58) completed a modified Piagetian isolation-of-variables task, and were compared to normally achieving ninth-graders and fourth-graders. Through cluster analysis, four different patterns of task approach were identified, representing normal performance, general conceptual disorder, specific developmental delay, and poor awareness of the implicit demands in the experimental situation.
