Abstract : Subjects who had previously been trained in voice communication using telephone equipment were tested one year later to determine whether they retained the skill. The following results were obtained: (1) Trained subjects made higher scores than did control subjects. Training had consisted of two hours of instruction and practice. (2) Performance on communication equipment one year after training was essentially as good as it had been immediately after completion of the training. The following conclusions seem warranted: (1) Effects of voice communication training endure for a period of at least one year. (2) Improvement incidental to test-taking as evinced by the control group, is also retained; however this skill remains inferior. (Author)
