The Development of Children's Rule Use on the Balance Scale Task.
Jansen, Brenda R. J.; van der Maas, Han L. J.
Journal of Experimental Child Psychology, v81 n4 p383-416 Apr 2002
The use of rules on nonverbal balance scale problems was studied among 5- to 19-year-olds. Latent class analyses indicated that children used rules, that different rules were used by children of different ages, and that both consistent and inconsistent rule use occurred. A model for the development of reasoning about the balance scale task was proposed. (Author/KB)
