Kamii, Constance; Lewis, Barbara Ann
Arithmetic Teacher, v38 n9 p4-9 May 1991
Presents a study of 87 second graders to demonstrate that achievement tests in primary mathematics emphasize pupil's lower-order thinking by comparing answers to interview questions from constructivist and traditionally instructed groups. Results indicated that constructivist instructed students demonstrated superior higher-order thinking on tasks involving place value, double-digit addition, story problems, and estimation. (MDH)
