Structured Tasks

Structured tasks allow us to assess young children’s knowledge. In these tasks, an experimenter presents children with images and/or objects and asks children a series of pre-determined questions about them. Children’s answers to the questions reveal what they know. For example, in one of our ongoing studies with preschool-aged children, we use structured tasks to assess children’s knowledge about plants and their memory for different plant properties.
