Abstract:

This experiment manipulated task simplification variables of lag and approach length in order to examine their influence on training of the perceptual motor skills of a simulated carrier landing in the transfer of a training experiment. In addition, the subjects level of motor skills was assessed as a means of controlling for individual differences and testing for any interactions that might exist between the training strategies and the subjects aptitude. Strong transfer effects were found for both motor-skill levels and the segmentation technique, while lag manipulation produced no main effects. Several interactions of the aptitude by treatment type between subjects motor-skill levels and training manipulation were discovered. The results suggest that low-motor-skill subjects are unable to adapt to changes presented during training and are unable to break bad habits acquired during the course of training.
