The effects of learning through replications of a simple serial task
Stevens, John Bradford
MetadataShow full item record
An experiment was performed to ascertain if there existed a learning process through replication in a simple serial task. Further, it was of interest to investigate the presents of a hysteresis phenomenon with decreasing demand after a channel capacity overload. This study did not support previous conclusions concerning these processes. Specifically, learning through replications did not significantly enhance performance, nor was a hysteresis phenomenon evident. This research did, in some measure, support the psychological activation theory.
