Representation of the Cardinality Principle: Early Conception of Error in a Counterfactual Test.
Freeman, Norman H.; Antonucci, Cristina; Lewis, Charlie
Cognition, v74 n1 p71-89 Jan 10 2000
Two experiments examined preschoolers' performance on test relying on the uniqueness principle for using evidence from a miscount in inferring a counterfactual cardinal number, with subtests probing associated number-skills. All the 5-year-olds and half the preschoolers passed the test. Results suggest that a crucial preschool step is to start conceptualizing error by categorizing relations between counting and miscounting. (Author/KB)
