Abstract:

The effect of partner ability on individual tracking performance was assessed under conditions of simulated team feedback. Each subject was told that he had a partner and that feedback represented his team performance relative to average performance. The average performance criterion was set so that subjects would exceed it on 10, 30, 50, 70, and 90 of the trials. These levels of criterion difficulty simulated partners of varying ability and each was administered to 14 subjects. As contrived partner ability increased, performance of the better trackers increased steadily, and performance of the poorer trackers first decreased, then increased. Author
