Percent of correct reconstructions on each problem on three checkerboards (N = 29). both the Square and the Diagonal Boards, problems involving the reconstruction of the edges remain the easiest. On problems involving nonedge patterns, there is a complete reversal between the t w o boards, the pattern based on proximity (the interior row on the Square Board and the diagonal r o w on the Diagonal Board) being easier. In other words, proximity becomes critical.

In any case, slope accounts for a small part of the difficulty, compared to the presence or absence of proximity. ) M o r e important are the results from the paired comparisons of the Problem Difficulty Comparison I 31 problems on the Square Board with those on the Diagonal Board. , left column, m a y be reconstructed on the right, or row second from the t o p m a y be displaced t o the middle r o w ) , and third, configuration incorrect.
