Abstract

Much work has been done on the transfer of training in experiments of perception and motor skills, and some studies have been made using school subject matter. The idea of formal discipline upon which some of the work in the schools has been based, has given way to the more modern phenomenon of transfer. Many of the studies carried on demonstrated transfer effects averaging from 20 to 30 per cent. The present study has to do with the simple sensori-motor skill of card sorting. It was assumed at the beginning of the experiment that negative transfer would be noted. The conditions and results are presented with the limitations of the type of function and the number of subjects used.
