Abstract

We tested hypotheses about the respective roles of working memory, perceptual speed, knowledge, and attention disengagement processes in skill transfer errors that resemble einstellung effects or strong-but-wrong slips. Correlational evidence was consistent with the hypothesis that these errors areprimarily due to the inability of learners to disengage attention from expected or familiar operations. The data also supported the notion that errorproneness during near transfer generalizes across different skills. Contrary to expectations, working memory capacity had little or no relationship to either transfer errors or attention disengagement ability. Results are discussed with respect to skill training and individual differences in skill performance ability. (C) 2001 Elsevier Science Inc. All rights reserved.
