Abstract:

This study reports an investigation of the relationship between seven learning tasks and a measure of intelligence. Residual gain, defined as final score residualized with respect to initial score, was used as a measure of learning. Two hundred sixty-eight U. S. Navy enlisted men served as subjects. Results of this investigation indicate that a factor of general learning ability is either non-existent or of little importance. Author
