Laboratory research is reported on retention of continuous tracking and of discrete procedural tasks as a function of rehearsal conditions simplified versus operational rehearsal tasks. All rehearsal conditions led to superior retention of the tracking task compared to a no-rehearsal condition, and certain of the procedural task scores indicated the same result. However, little evidence was found to indicate reliable differences among the several rehearsal conditions. It was concluded that sufficient original training will eliminate any potential differences among rehearsal conditions.
