Piaget's Operational Stages and a Child's Concept of Print: Is There a Correlation?
MetadataShow full item record
The correlation between a child's level of operativity and his/her understanding of conventions of print was investigated. The level of operativity was determined by Arlin's Piagetian Tasks Measure of Operativity and the child's understanding of conventions of print was determined by Clay's Concepts About Print Test. The results indicated no significant correlation coefficient between the two factors which leads to the consideration that perhaps developmental tasks are not connected to concepts of print, that some other criteria should be used to determine the optimum time for learning to read, or that the testing devices were not sensitive to what was being investigated.
