The assumption is that at any one point a child will construct a single model to be used to solve various related problems. Based on this assumption a number of different types of models of the earth have been described (see Vosniadou & Brewer, 1992). Some of these, such as the rectangular earth, disk earth, flattened sphere, and sphere, do seem to capture a relatively coherent use of a single mental model or strategy. However, a number of the other mental models described, including the dual earth and hollow sphere models, might in reality be capturing the responses of children who are shifting between a number of different mental models in response to varying questions.

The domain specific approach leads researchers to interpret performance on a given task as tapping into a specific, potentially isolated behavior. This interpretation leads researchers in this paradigm to downplay potential factors (either domain general or cross-domain influences) that might cause variation in the behavior of interest. That is, to the extent that we examine relatively narrow aspects of children's thinking, such as performance on a conservation task, object permanence, or a false-belief task, we tend to miss (or ignore) important sources of variability that might contribute to performance.
