Task Instructions and Strategy Transfer in the Directed Forgetting Performance of Mentally Retarded Adolescents.
Bray, Norman W.; And Others
Intelligence, v6 n2 p187-200 Apr-Jun 1982
The influence of task explanation on strategy transfer was studied. When educable mentally retarded adolescents were trained to rehearse and given a minimal explanation of a directed forgetting task, the majority were found to maintain the strategy on trials identical to rehearsal, but they failed to generalize the strategy in other trials.
