Abstract: The purposes of this study were (1) to determine whether children attain relational concepts as efficiently when they work as individuals as when they work in dyads; and (2) to compare, as strategies, the choices of the dyads and the individuals in the concept attainment experiments. The subjects were 192 sixth-grade children that were drawn in equal numbers from each of two elementary schools in the Greensboro, North Carolina Public School System. One of the schools was predominantly Negro, while the other school was predominantly white.
