Abstract: Hull suggests an empirical constant which he describes as a measure of individual differences in learning ability. If this constant is indeed a measure of differences in learning ability, then a correlation should exist between this constant and intelligence as measured by standard tests. The purpose of this study was to test the hypothesis that this constant, a, is correlated with measured intelligence. Previous research by Eckman suggested that a significant correlation did exist between these two variables.
