A multiple-classification training program developed by task analysis was presented to 4½-, 6-, and 7½-year-olds. After preliminary testing with 5 color X form matrices, Ss who could not solve multiple-classification tasks were randomly assigned to either the training or contact control group. Pre- and posttesting indicated a differential effect of training on the 3 age levels. The 6- and 7½-year-olds benefited from the training program, but the 4½-year-olds showed little increase in multiple-classification ability. In general, however, training improved Ss' performance on the criterion performance tasks and on the 9 transfer matrices.
