Abstract:

Three experiments are reported. Augmented feedback, when indicating that the subject was in error, was significantly more useful than such feedback when used to indicate that the subject was performing acceptably. The second study indicated that withdrawal of additional feedback information is least disruptive when the criterion for providing this information is progressively relaxed, and it is most disruptive when inconsistently available during withdrawal. The third study was not conclusive, but did suggest that complex criteria for the study of additional feedback information can be effective in training for continuous control tracking skill. Author
