Abstract:

The traditional approach to ability and skill assessment employed serial, discrete presentations of assessment tasks. Recently, some authors stressed the need for an approach which would permit administration of more than one assessment task simultaneously. There is a belief that such approach might be more appropriate, especially in the prediction of some complex skill, such as flying, which is likely to involve simultaneous performance and overload. Inherent in this belief is the supposition that individuals consistently differ in some kind of timesharing ability. But this has not been proved so far, and the present research is an attempt to test this supposition.
