Two experiments used error-detection to determine the reason for 3-year olds' perseverative errors on the postswitch phase of the Dimensional Change Card Sort. Results implied that perseveration cannot be attributed to difficulty inhibiting prepotent motor responses, but that changes in rule use between 3 and 5 years are more likely to increase representational flexibility.
