Abstract:

A satisfactory evaluation of the training effectiveness of the Mark 18 Coordination Trainer was delayed by various defects of design and construction. The work to date therefore consisted largely of modifications and improvements. The model has now been brought to a stage at which certain aspects of the learning process can be studied. Learning studies have begun. It would be desirable to make additional comparisons of training techniques requiring more precise adjustment of operating conditions, especially at the higher levels of difficulty, than the model now permits. Methods are in sight for making the further improvements that would be necessary for this purpose, and it is believed that the device can eventually be brought to a high level of effectiveness. Such further improvements would amount in effect to the development of a new model. Author
