Examined sex differences in 4- to 6-year olds' spatial skill. Found that performance on spatial transformation task showed a substantial male advantage by age 4 years 6 months, with the advantage no more robust for rotation than for translation items. Comparable vocabulary task performance indicated that male advantage on spatial tasks was not attributable to overall intellectual advantage. (Author/KB)
