A library project is defined as carefully outlined library work that is calculated to have the same teaching values and to require the same time to accomplish as a certain laboratory experiment. The transfer values of projects versus laboratory experiments have been tested in seven student groups of known intelligence. It has been difficult to find concepts and skills that did not transfer better in the more intelligent groups from project than from experiment in the laboratory. In the groups of tower intelligence the reverse is true. These data have been treated statistically.
