Abstract:

Two experiments were reported concerning transfer facilitation and interference derived from reversal of initial task requirements. Comparisons were made between individuals and two-man crews. Results from Experiment 1 revealed that those receiving an interpolated work session performed reliably better than those receiving a rest pause. Two-man crews also performed at a faster rate than did individuals. Results from Experiment 2 confirmed the crew versus individual performance differences, with an additional finding that crews adapted more adequately to rapidly changing response requirements.
