Contextual Interference Effects on the Acquisition, Retention, and Transfer of a Motor Skill.
Shea, John B.; Morgan, Robyn L.
Journal of Experimental Psychology: Human Learning and Memory, v5 n2 p179-87 Mar 1979
Retention and transfer of motor tasks was greater for high interference (random) acquisition groups than for low interference (blocked) acquisition groups. This effect was most notable when transfer was measured for the transfer task of greatest complexity. Results support Battig's conceptualization of contextual interference effects on retention and transfer. (Author/CP)
