Abstract:

The research described in the proposal has continued on-track, and on-schedule. To date three major studies have been completed, and are in various phases of write-up and submission for publication. The studies are 1 Validation of a theoretical taxonomy of perceptual speed abilities 2 A study of part-task training and aptitude-treatment interactions in transfer of training and 3 A study of the ability and self-regulatory aptitude components of asymptotic skills. In addition in collaboration with Dr. Dan Woltz, completion work is taking place on the ability and volitional components of knowledge acquisition in an associative memorysubstitution task. No significant impediments to the progress of the project have been encountered
