Abstract

The retention of basic visual and auditory discrimination skills is of interest to kindergarten and first-grade teachers. This study measures kindergarteners' retention abilities over the summer vacation period. Visual discrimination skills were retained to a higher degree than was the measured auditory discrimination skill. Sex of S and chronological age were not significant factors affecting retention whereas IQ was. Implications for researchers and educators are discussed briefly.
