Specificity of Transfer in Basic and Applied Perceptual-Motor Tasks
MetadataShow full item record
We conducted research on transfer of skills using basic stimulus–response compatibility tasks and applied tasks requiring control of a hydraulic excavator simulator. The basic tasks show rapid acquisition of practiced spatial mappings, for which transfer is specific to the procedures used in training. The applied tasks show transfer across alternative control configurations that maintain practiced spatial mappings, as well as from part to whole practice. Transfer from simulated to real equipment also seems to occur; however, studies involving cooperation of academia and industry are needed to provide more definitive evidence on this question.

Better Retention of Skill Operating a Simulated Hydraulic Excavator After Part-Task Than After Whole-Task TrainingSo, Joey; Proctor, Robert; Dunston, Phillip; Wang, Xiangyu (2013)Objective: We examined whether part-task training produces better learning and retention than whole-task training of a trench-and-load task performed on a hydraulic excavator simulator.Background: For complex perceptual-motor ...
The effects of awareness-raising through stimulated recall on the repeated performance of the same task and on a new task of the same typeSheppard, C.; Ellis, Rod (2018)The study explores the effects of intervening between the performance of the same task and whether these effects transfer to a new task. 40 Japanese university students completed the same monologic narrative task three ...
