The Role of Cues to Differential Absolute Size in Children's Transitive Inferences.
Wright, Barlow C.; Dowker, Ann D.
Journal of Experimental Child Psychology, v81 n3 p249-75 Mar 2002
Investigated the role of "nonlogical" perceptual cues to differential absolute size in the transitive inferences of 6- and 7-year-olds. Found that both age groups showed identical overall premise memory, but the younger group tended to reason more on the basis of perceptual information rather than on successfully encoded premise information. Categorical effects could be circumvented with appropriate controls. (Author/KB)
