Toward a Unified Theory of the Relationship between Training Methods and Factors of Cognitive Ability
Carter, Shani D.
Online Submission, Paper presented at the Academy of Human Resource Development International Research Conference in the Americas (Panama City, FL, Feb 20-24, 2008)
The paper proposes a theory that trainees have varying ability levels across different factors of cognitive ability, and that these abilities are used in varying levels by different training methods. The paper reviews characteristics of training methods and matches these characteristics to different factors of cognitive ability. The paper proposes that if organizations assign trainees to methods of training based on trainees' cognitive ability profiles, then learning will be maximized. (Contains 2 figures.)
