Comment on Hore and Tryon's Study of the Similar Structure Hypothesis.
Gampel, Ezra S.
American Journal on Mental Retardation, v95 n2 p236-38 Sep 1990
The paper notes A. Hore and W. Tryon's support of the developmental position that persons with and without mental retardation of similar mental age show similar cognitive patterns, but suggests that mental age is psychometrically invalid and Piagetian tasks are inappropriate to evaluate this position. An information processing approach is recommended. (DB)
