Preschoolers' Understanding of Stable and Changeable Characteristics.
Bales, Diane W.; Sera, Maria D.
Cognitive Development, v10 n1 p69-107 Jan-Mar 1995
Three experiments explored preschoolers' developing knowledge of stable (identity, gender, and race), changeable (mood, weight, and health), and changeable-but-irreversible (age and height) characteristics when knowledge of those characteristics was tested verbally rather than pictorially. Found that children make systematic rather than random errors, especially on changeable characteristics. (DR)
