Summary
"This book reports the results of the submission of 1500 children (aged 2-16 yrs) with whom the Gesell Institute has been in touch for many years, to the Lowenfeld Mosaic test. The plan of the work is a year-by-year analysis of the material and a comparison of the developmental findings invested in this cross section with some longitudinal studies of individual children. In this work the authors have laid foundations for a basic outline of developmental changes in boys and girls, as shown in response to a defined stimulus--the manipulation of a standard set of colored geometric shapes. They give us, at the same time, a detailed study of American children. Being nonverbal, the Mosaic test is free from semantic difficulties, since what the child does with the material offered, the design he makes, constitutes his response. Since the designs made are directly reproducible, they can be studied from many different angles, and can be reassessed, if desired, at a future date. A valuable feature of this book is the inclusion of longitudinal studies of individual children to balance the tables of mean values of different qualities selected for analysis at each age level. These studies are of considerable interest, since they show how individual a series of responses to the test can be. Some of these studies support also the suggestion of the possibility of persistence in a given individual of identical types of response for many years, even, as given in one instance here, the persistence of an identical pattern"--Foreword.
