LET Tips: Possible Questions on Piaget and His Theory

One of my reasons why I made this blog was to actually help those who will get the LET or the Licensure Examination for Teachers pass the exam. I just took the exam last October 2009 and I was blessed that out of over forty thousand examinees who took the exam, I got the highest rating all over the Philippines. I was very honored and happy and I really want to share what I have.
Below are some of the possible items that are usually included in the exam. They may not the exact questions but at least you will have an idea of the possible questions given in the exam. Just try to answer as best as you can. Please don't immediately scroll down because I placed the answers at the bottom.

1. Two identical beakers A and B are presented to the child. The teacher pours the liquid from B to C, which is taller and thinner than both A and B. The teacher asks which beaker has the most amount of water. The child points at beaker C. In what cognitive developmental stage the child is?
A. Formal Operational Stage
B. Concrete Operational Stage
C. PreOperational Stage
D. Sensorimotor Stage
2. Liz's mother has two crackers, both equal in size. She broke one of the crackers into four pieces. Liz's wants more crackers so she chose the cracker which was divided to four pieces. What does Liz's choice illustrate?

B. Centration
C. Accommodation
D. Conservation
3. Which level of cognitive development will properties of mathematical operations can be taught?
