Abstract

One hundred twenty male undergraduates, each assigned to one of two groups, performed highly similar perceptual-motor tasks varying in difficulty. The tasks were provided by the Multipoint Two-Hand Coordinator. On Day 2, one-half of the Ss in each group changed tasks while one-half continued on the same task. Evidences of positive and negative transfer effects were found with greater positive transfer from the easier to the more difficult task than in the reverse direction. A striking feature of the study was the persistence of negative transfer effects.
