Abstract : The major finding of the study which was not expected on the basis of previous studies of augmenting feedback was that increasing amounts of information in the augmenting feedback paired with primary feedback conditions that presented little information resulted in positive transfer effects. Specifically, it was found that subjects learned something about the difficult auditory tracking task which persisted following removal of highly informative visual augmenting feedback. This indicates the need to extend the range of task difficulty in augmenting feedback studies to account for tasks presenting very little informative feedback. (Author)
