Ferretti, Ralph P.; Butterfield, Earl C.
American Journal on Mental Retardation, v93 n4 p424-33 Jan 1989
The study compared the problem solving strategies of intellectually gifted (N=133), average (N=102) and mentally retarded (N=51) children on two-dimensional integration problems. Gifted children tended to integrate dimensional information by addition, average children used lexicographic strategies, and retarded children relied on a single dimension. (Author/DB)
