    The aim of this study is double: to observe and analyze reprises in Piagetian tests; and to better understand, through the study of reprises, the construction of children's thinking when they are involved in a conversation with the adult. The corpus is composed by videotaped conversations between adults and children around the Piagetian test of conservation of quantities of liquid. Evidence suggests that reprises are not just imitation or heteronomy. They are used by children (and also adults) to try to deal with on the one hand the expectations of the adult and their peers and on the other hand with the elaboration and expression of a personal point of view. This raises the important question of what such tests can assess: the individual cognitive competencies of the children or the social, linguistic and cognitive quality of a (collective) conversation?
