Abstract : The series of studies took its point of departure from the assumption that in any given case general transfer represents circumscribed habits and skills which are determined by the conditions of training and which apply to a limited range of learning tasks. The experiments were, therefore, designed to determine the antecedents and the components of general transfer. The ultimate aim was to describe an hierarchy of skills which constitute potential components of general transfer.
