Abstract : Ranging, tracking, and hits scores improve rapidly through five or six five-minute trials, and more slowly to the twentieth to twenty-fifth trial. Training on a variety of target cycles produces more gradual and long-continued improvement than training on one target cycle. Acceleration of learning as a result of earphones providing a supplementary cue for ranging cannot be conclusively demonstrated under present experimental conditions. Training transfers in a high degree to new target courses. (Author)
