Abstract

Forty-five preschool children were given 18 uncorrected trials before solving a size discrimination problem. Non-solution response choices for a particular stimulus size or position were evidenced by 71% of the subjects. Subjects who made non-solution hypothesis behaviors .on the trials before concept learning did not require significantly more blocks of trials to learn the discrimination problem than those subjects who had responded randomly. A trend was noted such that subjects who had demonstrated the most consistency in their non-solution hypothesis behavior required fewer trials to learn the discrimination problem.
