The Development of Reasoning with Causal Conditionals.
Janveau-Brennan, Genevieve; Markovits, Henry
Developmental Psychology, v35 n4 p904-11 Jul 1999
Examined performance of first through sixth graders on conditional-inference task, using causal conditionals and a generation of alternatives task. Found a steady age-related increase in uncertainty responses to two uncertain logical forms and an increase in production of disabling conditions for "modus ponens." Individual differences in inference production were related to number of alternatives produced in generation task. (Author/KB)
