EIGHT GROUPS OF SUBJECTS PERFORMED A CONTINUOUS TRACKING AND PROCEDURAL TASK UNDER VARIOUS CONDITIONS OF AUDITORY PERFORMANCE FEEDBACK DURING TRAINING 8 days and rehearsal 3 days. Four degrees of auditory cueing were used during training by varying in size the stepwise relationship between intensity of noise and amount of tracking error in three amounts plus a control condition of random noise. Two rehearsal conditions were used to complete the factorial arrangement-feedback similar to training versus random feedback. Rehearsal occurred 14 days after the completion of training and a transfer test to the medium-noise condition was conducted 14 days following the last rehearsal session for all groups. Transfer performance was found to be significantly related to feedback specificity during training medium specificity was inferior to either high or low specificity, while the rehearsal variable had no statistical effect on performance with any performance metric.
