The present experiment was designed to produce additional experimental evidence on the effects of overtraining on attention in a two-cue discrimination problem. It was the contention of the present study that Sutherland and Holgate's failure to obtain equal mastery of cues was due to insufficient training. If training had been prolonged far enough equal mastery of cues should result. That is, if Ss were overtrained on a two-cue discrimination problem and tested for level of performance on each cue separately at the end of overtraining Ss would perform at near 100% on the test.
