Training children on multiplicative classification Heemskerk, Antonius Jacobus


Twenty-one Ss received a matrix training task which made cognitive demands similar to the reclassification test task and 17 Ss received WISC Block Design training which was not cognitively related to the test task. Results supported the hypothesis that cognitively related training significantly improves reclassification performance, and that non-cognitively related training does not. Neither the Matrix training group, nor the Block Design training group generalized to a second reclassification task. The improvement of some Ss and not others is explained as the result of the variance in the competence and performance level of cognitive structures
