Effects of Age and Schooling on the Acquisition of Elementary Quantitative Skills.
Bisanz, Jeffrey; And Others
Developmental Psychology, v31 n2 p221-36 Mar 1995
Studied the influence of school- and age-related variables on tasks involving quantitative skills. On conservation of number, performance improved as a function of age but not schooling. On mental arithmetic, accuracy improved with schooling rather than age. Results support the utility of the cut-off design for investigating instructional and developmental influences on cognitive development. (ET)
