Looking and Search Measures of Object Knowledge in Preschool Children.
Hood, Bruce; Cole-Davies, Victoria; Dias, Melanie
Developmental Psychology, v39 n1 p61-70 Jan 2003
This study examined preschoolers' performance on an observation task and a search task involving the invisible displacement of an object. Findings indicated that in the observation task, there was significantly longer looking to impossible than to possible outcomes among all children. Most 3-year-olds, but significantly fewer 2.5-year-olds, successfully completed the search task to retrieve the rolled object. Unexpectedly, boys outperformed girls. (Author/KB)
