Abstract : Two experiments were conducted to evaluate the effects of constraint redundancy shifts, length of rest interval and duration of intertask interval upon the acquisition and transfer of schematic concepts. The results from the two studies complement each other in that they indicate hypothesis shifting by Ss, rather than fatigue or boredom, to be the primary basis for both the variable performance and the small positive transfer in schematic concept formation tasks.
