ROLE OF TASK SPECIFICITY IN DEVELOPMENT OF DEPTH PERCEPTION IN CHILDREN

Sunita Singh Rai.

Abstract
Perception of depth and distance of an object is one of the problems of discussion among psychologists from a
long time. There are various psychological cues (size, interposition, linear perspective, texture and aerial
perspective height and shadow) determines the depth and distance of any object which are located in space. It
was found that certain depth cues are utilized by children earlier than others developmental trends were also
found. Hudson has carried out fairly systematic studies of “verbal” test of pictorial depth perception. One major
limitation of most of the previous studies of pictorial depth perception is their predominant reliance either only
on “verbal measures” or only on “performance measures”, which is likely to give rise to considerable errors,
particularly in the case of young children. The difficulties are that subjects, who fail to interpret Hudson’s
pictures in a 3-D manner, provide considerable evidence for 3-D perception on other kinds of “performance”
task. This term coined as “Task specificity” in performance which appears to be a recurrent feature in
developmental and cross-cultural studies of cognition. The present paper is mainly emphasized Researchers
have generally used only one task (either verbal or performance), which do not produce similar results with
respect to pictorial depth perception. The present study tries to examine the role of task characteristics in 3-D
perception skill by using a locally developed Doll placement task (DPT). It was found that children in general
would appear to be 3-D perceivers more on construction than verbal task.

Key words: The present study tries to examine the role of task characteristics in 3-D perception skill by using a locally developed Doll placement task (DPT).
