Abstract

Studied the development of the relation between skills of visual and auditory pattern classification at the Grade 2, Grade 6, and adult (N=108) age levels using visual and auditory representations of the same abstract information. Ss were required to say whether the 2 patterns in each intramodal problem came from the same class. The questions of interest were whether pattern structure is processed independently of presentation modality and whether there is change or continuity with development in the use of visual and auditory pattern characteristics in classification. Results provide evidence of common processing of pattern class structure for the modalities, patterns, prototypes, and age range studied.
