Day, Jeanne D.; Hall, Lynda K.
American Journal of Mental Retardation, v93 n2 p125-37 Sep 1988
Prompted learning and transfer were compared for mildly retarded (N=26), average achieving (N=15) and above average (N=15) children (ages 11 to 16 years). Subjects learned a problem solving strategy which utilized a graduated series of prompts. Retarded children required more assistance and more training to learn and transfer the trained strategy.
