Abstract : The purpose of the contract was to study the psychological characteristics and instructional factors of skill acquisition in jobs requiring high levels of expertise. One of the goals of the work was to examine the acquisition of competence in skills that require hundreds or even thousands of hours of instruction and practice. This work was carried out by a collection of several separate research projects which were combined into a single grant for the convenience of the government. Each of these separate projects has reported at length about its work, in archival publications, extended status reports to ONR, technical reports. This final report is a compilation of information about the many outcomes that have been separately published.
