Abstract : An experiment was formulated, conducted, and results reported involving video and teletype consoles in an information retrieval environment. In conjunction with the development of an information system, a capability to simulate a variety of problem solving environments and automatically evaluate results was designed and programmed. This included the ability to give users on-line feedback of their relative effectiveness. Basic information relevant to further research was gathered, including: a bibliography of research in man-computer interaction; and a file of information on available computer consoles. (Author)
