Abstract : The purpose of this study was to compare two different gain measures 'residual gain' and 'common points of mastery.' On a learning test administered to 874 Navy enlisted men it was found that there was a low but significant relationship between the two measures. It is possible that the unreliability of the measures used in this study conceals a sizeable relationship. No significant relationship was noted between either of the gain measures and verbal intelligence or numerical aptitude or mechanical aptitude. (Author)
