Abstract

Forty mildly retarded, 6-through 9-year-old children selected from educable mentally retarded (EMR) classes and 40 normally achieving students of the same age were pretrained on the oddity solution and then given eight different, six-trial oddity transfer problems. A higher level of transfer was associated with the older (8- and 9-year-olds) and with the normally achieving students. The students' performance on the oddity transfer trials was used to classify them into their two respective groups. High levels of classification accuracy were observed in the discriminant function analyses. On both the group comparison and the individual student classifications, all eight oddity types were sensitive to differences between the normally achieving and mildly retarded grade school students.
