Abstract:

A preliminary evaluation of the effectiveness of a task classification system based upon human abilities for integrating and generalizing research findings was the focus of the present paper. The evaluation was designed to determine a the extent to which abilities could differentiate task performance and b the extent to which such performance could be differentiated with respect to selected independent variables. Fifty- three studies in the vigilance literature were analyzed in terms of abilities required for task performance. The studies were then classified according to one of four predominant abilities.
