This paper analyses the research literature that approaches the contextual interference effect in applied settings. In contrast to the laboratory settings, in which high interference conditions depress acquisition and promote learning evaluated in retention and transfer tests, in applied settings most of the studies (60%) fail to observe positive effects after manipulation of the contextual interference. Some possible explanations for the fact are hypothesized regarding the characteristics of… Expand
