Abstract : The report summarizes briefly the work of a three-year series of experimental studies of human cognition, involving the investigation of problem solving and learning in man-machine interaction situations, and of variables and processes relevant in such situations. The work included four separate projects: Computer-aided problem solving, computer-aided instruction techniques, feedback in concept learning, and intuitive decision making. Each of the four projects was concerned with research to obtain knowledge that could contribute to the efficiency of man-machine systems functioning in making decisions and performance of various related kinds of intellectual tasks.
