Hypothesis-Testing Abilities of Language-Impaired Children.
Weismer, Susan Ellis
Journal of Speech and Hearing Research, v34 n6 p1329-38 Dec 1991
This study, which assessed hypothesis-testing abilities using a discrimination-learning paradigm, found that 16 language-impaired primary-level children solved fewer problems than 16 controls equated on cognitive level, but the 2 groups used similar hypothesis types to solve the problems. Type of verbal feedback (explicit versus nonexplicit) did not affect performance. (Author/JDD)
