Abstract:

The report presents the results of preliminary work with two performance testing devices. One RATER measures choice reaction time or the time required to respond to four different colored lights presented in random order for five minutes by pressing the corresponding correct button. The other device LOGIT measures the ability to solve problems concerned with determining the correct sequential order in which twenty buttons are pressed in order to light the board. Data are presented for comparing the scores for any group tested on the RATER with a typical Navy population. Results with LOGIT show it to be potentially useful for determining performance decrements during exposure to unusual environments, such as high pressure, confinement, or Helium-oxygen breathing mixtures.
