The effects of two environmental factors, noise and temperature, upon human performance of a simple, well-learned manual dexterity task were examined. The experimental design was a 2x2 factorial, using twelve subjects. The data obtained from scores on a Purdue Pegboard task were analyzed in a randomized block, by means of an analysis of variance. Results indicated that temperature had a significant effect on performance, while noise and the temperature x noise interaction did not.
