Not done Sir, but doing.

Plenty is doing.

" is instructive to look at a principal components analysis of Piagetian items. A study by Garfinkle (1975) provides intercorrelations among fourteen Piagetian tasks administered to ninety-six kindergarten and first-grade children. The mean inter-item correlation is +.34.... The first principal component accounts for 40 per cent of the total variance in these fourteen items.... The communalities (which are close to the squared multiple correlation of each item with every other item) of the fourteen Piagetian items range from .41 to .80, with a mean of .61, which is comparable to what we find for Wechsler subtests.... But what makes this evidence even more striking testimony to Piaget's genius in devising test items* that get at the most fundamental aspects of intellectual development is the fact that the general factor of the Piagetian battery is almost pure g in the Spearman sense."

A.R.JENSEN, 1980, Bias in Mental Testing. London : Methuen. {*However, as Jensen mentions later, Piagetian 'items' often take as long to administer as does a whole Wechsler sub-test that is composed of many items taking less than a minute to administer.}
