A “picture” of children's potential for learning: Looking into strategy changes and working memory by dynamic testing
We examined whether children would show different change-patterns in their strategy use when administered a number of series completion tasks that were presented within a dynamic testing formatExpand
Dynamic testing in indigenous and ethnic minority children
Abstract Our study aim was to examine whether ethnic-minority children would show different change patterns to indigenous children when presented with a seriation task within a dynamic testingExpand
Young children's organizational strategies on a same-different task: A microgenetic study and a training study.
This study was designed to explore young children's strategy development using a new kind of "same-different" task that minimized memory demands. Four-year-old children were asked to judge whether 2Expand
