Abstract:

While the problems and methods of learning theory and training technology seem similar, they are in fact subtly different. Illustrations of dissonance are discussed, using the following natural but inefficient extrapolations from academic traditions to test a training program, compare two candidate programs, to compare two training devices, hold Ss, training time, and method constant the problem of a training program is a special case of transfer of training a single objective task analysis may be used for any of several research purposes and training methods for psychomotor performance and sensory discrimination are the best investment of training research.
