Age-Related Changes in Children's Use of External Representations.
Zelazo, Philip David; Sommerville, Jessica A.; Nichols, Shana
Developmental Psychology, v35 n4 p1059-71 Jul 1999
Three experiments explored 3- and 4-year olds' use of external representations. Results indicated that 4-year olds outperformed 3-year olds on self-recognition task; children performed better with photographs than drawings; a delay had no effect. Results suggested that assessments of self and other understanding may reflect children's ability to reason about conflicting external representations. (Author/KB)
