Suggested Responses: Students should select one of the following tasks presented in the chapter: conservation of number, conservation of continuous quantity, or categorization. The task should be accurately described and discussed in terms of what it is designed to demonstrate. Specific cognitive limitations shown by the task - unidimensional thinking, irreversibility, or perception-based thinking, for example - should be mentioned. Flaws or criticisms of the task by other researchers - if, for example, it leads to an underestimation of children's abilities or doesn't account for cultural differences - should be discussed.
