dc.description.abstract Transfer of training is the degree to which a skill or principle learned in one environment can be applied in another environment. Most research that demonstrates transfer relies on the use of hints or explicit instructions identifying the applicability of the information learned in training to the test task. Critics charge that this is not really transfer at all, but simply following instructions. The research reported herein describes an efficient means for testing hypotheses in a fault diagnosis task that, although it would appear to be an obvious strategy, requires an extremely simple training task for subjects to detect. Subjects in Experiment 1 apply the learned principle to a slightly more complex but similar problem, demonstrating near transfer. Subjects in Experiment 2 apply the principle in a completely dissimilar task, exhibiting far transfer.
