Summary: This study investigated the extent to which various latent class models adequately described some elementary rulegoverned mathematical behaviors. Two hundred and eightythree children were given a fraction concepts test in which they identified fractional parts of sets of objects. Results supported the adoption of a set of threeclass models including a mastery class, a nonmastery class, and a transitional class to describe the data.
