Abstract:

The purpose of this study was to determine the contribution of part-task training to the relearning of a whole-task. An experiment was performed using subjects who had learned the wholetask a simulated bomb-toss maneuver during participation in the previous study, Part-Versus Whole-Task Learning of a Flight Maneuver, TR NAVTRADEVCEN 297-1 but had lost proficiency as a result of a ten-month interval of non-practice. Half the subjects obtained part-task refresher training prior to whole-task training the other half obtained whole-task training only. Results revealed that while part-task training could not completely substitute for whole-task training, it substantially reduced the number of wholetask trials needed. Author
