Abstract : The invention of this research effort was to determine the cognitive processes involved in the learning of complex motor tasks and strategies that might aid in learning retention and transfer. Eight technical reports were generated to answer different but related questions. The focus of our efforts has been on cognitive processes and learner strategies, and their involvement in the learning and performance of motor skills. A perusal of the recent psychological literature reveals an abundance of studies in which learner strategies are examined in the acquisition of verbal materials.
