Short description In the Give a number task, asking a wide range of numbers, instead of asking only numbers until the child can give them correctly, reveals that the knowledge of a number is not all or nothing, as supposed by the classic titration method, but there is a gradual decrease as numbers get larger. The classic titration method cannot capture this gradual knowledge, consequently, it may be imprecise. Additionally, larger numbers than 5 should be asked, too, because there are several children who does not know all numbers in their counting lists, even if 5 or some larger numbers are known.
