The focus of this study was to clarify the degree of relationship between field Transfer of Learning by means of application in the modern physics (laser) and common field. To achieve this goal an intact group of 85 students in introductory level college in Shahreray zone in Tehran in Iran participated in test. The major objectives of the test were to investigate students’ transfer of physics learning from their experiences of watching laser applications to the provided physical models, from one model to the other and from the models to the modern physics (laser) problems. To find the degree of relationship between tow variables point- biserial correlation coefficient was used. To compare the mean scores of the tow variables the independent T-test technique was used. The result of the statistical analyses revealed that in the knowledge domain that was significant difference between the control and the experimental groups.
