Feedback dependent encoding of length series

, : Feedback dependent encoding of length series. British Journal of Developmental Psychology 3(2): 133-142

Visual feedback in transitive reasoning tasks of the Bryant and Trabasso variety apparently results in graded linear encoding of the length series whereas linguistic feedback results in dichotomous encoding. When 6-8-yr-old children had to tackle transitive tasks in which the visual formation of a graded series was impossible (e.g., A > B, N > A, B > N) the performance was more disrupted under conditions of visual than under conditions of linguistic feedback. In a 2nd experiment with 6- and 8-yr-olds high test accuracy does not depend on perceiving actual lengths (visual feedback) but can also be induced through linguistic feedback by providing a procedural cue to gradations. The cue provided was the ratio of occasions on which a stick was described as being 'longer' than the comparison stick to occasions on which it was described as being 'shorter'. The procedure adopted during training was designed so that these ratios corresponded to the relative lengths of the sticks.
