Preschool learning profiles of poor and middle-class chilean children
Journal of Social Psychology
Preschool Chilean children (56 girls, 42 boys, ages 4 years 6 months to 6 years 5 months) were given the Iowa Early Learning Assessment (Scott, 1977), a readiness battery based on Piagetian theory that has been employed in cross-cultural research, which was adapted for cultural fairness in Chile. There were no differences by sex, but consistent and statistically significant differences by social class on all five measured subtests (Sedation, Visual Motor, Classification, Vocabulary, and Concepts). The smallest socioeconomic status differences were obtained on the Vocabulary subtest, whereas the greatest differences existed on the Classification, Visual Motor, and Concepts subtests. © 1986 Taylor & Francis Group, LLC.
