Abstract:

The accuracy of reporting the data from briefly-exposed, multi-target symbolic displays in which each display response pair within a series of successive displays is an independent event was shown to be inversely related to the display load and the ordinal position of the display counting back from the last one seen. It was also found that accuracy of report was poorer when a report was required to each display than when the response rate was lower even though at the lower rates, S could not anticipate when the report would be required. The accuracy of report was not affected by the distribution of loads in the display series nor was it affected by the display presentation rate as is the case in sequentially dependent series.
