Transfer of training in a simple motor skill along the speed dimension by Robert B Ammons( Book )

2 editions published in 1954 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The required speed of response is one of the many dimensions along which tasks vary. Although it is well-known that, in general, as the speed of a task increases, proficiency of performance decreases, the relationship between the performance of a first and second task as a function of the difference in their speed requirements is not so well known. For optimal performance of a second task there must be some best speed of the first or training task. At present, however, the specification of the speed for the optimal training task (for any given second task) must be based upon speculation unsupported by reliable data. The study being reported was designed to obtain information on the general problem of the influence of the speed of a training task upon the performance of a following task. The task used in the research was rotary pursuit at four different speeds. The speeds were assigned to the training and transfer periods in such a manner as to obtain all 16 possible combinations of speeds in the two periods. The 16 different combinations of speeds were presented under three different conditions of distribution of practice; thus, a total of 48 subgroups were employed in the experiment
