Abstract : A methodology for directly determining the extent to which Ss utilize statistical properties of features is reported. Empirical progress in identifying the principles underlying selection of feature spaces and relevant encoding and storage processes is discussed. Support for both feature selection on the basis of statistical properties and the storage notion of schema plus correction is provided by these studies. The report also includes a discussion of experiments directed toward determining appropriate response modes for maximizing behavioral data. On the basis of these studies it appears that similarity ratings provide more refined information about pattern processing while not substantially effecting task performance. A study is presented which shows a modest correlation between IQ scores and performace on a schematic concept formation task. Possibilities for using the schematic concept formation task as a personnel selection device are considered. Finally, progress on two lines of theoretical development is described. (Author)
