Specific transitions in the development of spatial perspective-taking ability

Journal Article (Journal Article)

90 5-11 yr olds were tested on 2 variations of Piaget's spatial perspective task. The predominance of each of 4 kinds of spatial errors (interposition, aspect, distance, and right-left) was found to be differentially related both to age and overall task performance. The significance of this developmental sequence and the method of error analysis employed are discussed in the context of the earlier work of Piaget and B. Inhelder.
