Formation and transfer of specific control expectations are analysed in 5 children (7 to 8 years old). Subjects passed for two experimental conditions in a within subject alternative treatments design. We worked with two pre-experimental arbitrary classes of 5 members, respectively for each class, tested through receptive and productive formats. By means of prompts and direct instruction of problems-solution, and by means of contingent feedback, internal and external responsibility verbalisations were established. Transfer of expectations and the audience role over novel stimuli were also analysed. Results show a derived responsibility verbalisations formation and a differential transfer of expectations, as well as the acquisition of conditional control function by the audience.

Key words:

Audience, Arbitrary classes, ?Locus of control?, Transfer of functions, Problem solving
