Abstract

Children's difficulties in drawing accurate sketch maps led earlier researchers to conclude that young children were spatially incompetent. More recently, investigators have devised new large‐scale spatial tasks on which children perform well. How do our tasks affect our conclusions about children's spatial cognition?.
