You will conduct a test of a preschool age child and a school age child to find out if the child has yet to gain an understanding of centration /conservation


You will also perform the same test on another child who is in the early primary grades.


You can choose one of the tests that Piaget created to measure a child’s awareness of the concept of centration/ conservation. The basic tests are outlined in our text.


Please define the term centration and conservation.


 Please briefly explain how you conducted the test/ the method used.


What was the response of each child? 

What do the responses tell you about their understanding of the concept of conservation.  Are the results consistent with developmental stage of each child?
