We demonstrate learning and problem‐solving transfer within the web‐based homework tutor MasteringPhysics by considering time to completion, the number of hints requested, and the number of incorrect responses given. The group of students who were prepared by a prior related problem solves a related follow‐up problem in ∼14% less time on average compared to an unprepared group on that problem. Furthermore, the prepared group requests ∼15% fewer hints and makes about ∼11% fewer errors on average than the unprepared group.
