Abstract:

IN AN EARLIER EXPERIMENT IT HAD BEEN REPORTED THAT RESPONSE TIME TO AUDITORY SIGNALS TENDS TO INCREASE AS A FUNCTION OF TIME ON TASK, BUT over that this increase may be inhibited by providing simulated knowledge of results. In this experiment it was apparently demonstrated that simulated knowledge of results was less effective in preventing such an increase in response time than was true knowledge of results, while a simple acknowledgement of responses had no apparent effect.
