As was discussed in Chapter 1, the first step that must be taken in the creation of a general implementation of the chunking theory of learning, is the generalization of the model of task performance. In this chapter, we do exactly this, through the analysis and modeling of performance in a set of related stimulus-response compatibility tasks. This excursion into compatibility phenomena is a digression from the primary focus on practice, but it is a necessary step in the development of the chunking model. We will return to the discussion of practice in Chapter 4.
