Performance of a group of adult trainees in a workshop for mentally retarded persons and that of an equivalent-MA group of third-grade children was observed in a toy construction task. Performances were video taped and subsequently coded for executive activity and other classes of behavior. A range of executive activities was identified, and these proved to be a powerful influence in discriminating between the groups. Other analyses of event sequences examined where executive activity occurred and which types of events typically followed such activity.
