To appraise developmental difficulty or mental demand, relational complexity is not enough

Behavioral and Brain Sciences 21 (6):843-844 (1998)
Abstract
Two assertions of Halford et al. are critiqued: their claim of priority in relational complexity analysis and the sufficiency for cognitive development of their relational-complexity analysis of tasks. Critical discussion of concrete task analyses (i.e., the relational complexity of proportionality problems, of balance scale problems, and the Tower of Hanoi) serves, by way of counterexamples, to highlight problems in their method.
