Cognitive Development Is Abrupt (but Not Stage-Like).
Brainerd, C. J.
Monographs of the Society for Research in Child Development, v58 n9 p170-90 1993
Focuses on the question of whether developmental improvement in performance on cognitive tasks is abrupt or continuous. Explains three model-based approaches to this question, and stresses that research conducted in these approaches has indicated that developmental improvements consist of jumps through discrete states. Concludes that these results can be explained without resorting to a stage hypothesis. (BC)
