Abstract: We examine expertise as an assemblage of factual knowledge, conceptual knowledge, and the ability to transfer. Experiment 1 provides empirical support in biomechanics, a content- dominated domain; Experiment 2 extends the construct to bioengineering design, a process- dominated domain. Factual knowledge is a lesser predictor than conceptual knowledge, which is a lesser predictor than transfer in determining level of expertise. This study instantiates a view of expertise that held broad appeal but lacked empirical evidence.
