Abstract

ACQUISITION OF SKILL JohnAmett manipulative skills are acquired by a somewhat haphazard trial-and-error process in such a way that the first fairly success- ful method of, say, fastening a button, will become established in the learner's repertoire. Other methods might exist which are faster, more reliable, or involve less effort, but any given ACQUISITION OF SKILL individual will have acquired some good and some less good methods. Perl (1934) was probably the first to look at correlations JOHN ANNETT M.A. D.Phil. between measures of performance on trials at different stages Department of Psychology in learning a task. He found that these correlations tend to be University of Hull lower, the greater the separation between the trials. This feature of inter-trial correlation matrices is known as the superdiagonal form. In simple tasks, the correlations tend to zero with an Approaches to skill acquisition interval of relatively few trials.
