Summary

The ability of 23 educable mentally retarded children (mean chronological age, 9 years) to transfer verbal elaboration techniques to a labeling task was tested following one, two, or no elaboration experiences. An additional 18 retardates were tested in two outside control conditions to identify the effects of reversal experience on acquisition and transfer. Since analysis of first trial errors and trials to criterion revealed no differences in performance attributable to reversal experience, the two outside control group conditions were combined with the appropriate experimental conditions for further statistical analyses. Data showed that, relative to the performance of Ss not receiving elaboration experience, those receiving one elaboration experience showed little evidence of transfer while those receiving two elaboration experiences revealed a quite clear transfer performance. Findings were discussed in terms of the failure of previous studies to document transfer of training. (Author/GW)
