Abstract : A procedure for designing performance aids was given a limited-scope tryout on a portion of the Atlas E system. No evidence was found to contradict the performance aid recommendations generated by the procedure. The major change made in the procedure as a result of the tryout is to require providing performance aids for every task in a system except for tasks in which use of an aid would result in too slow performance. Training programs in the auto-instructional format are recommended as a routine addition to the performance aids complement. Five specific aids are recommended for the Atlas E system. Three important research problems are suggested for future research on performance aids development. (Author)
