Abstract : A review was made of the manual control tracking literature to determine if a sensitive measure of performance under environmental stress existed. The quasilinear describing function schemes, the adaptive variable scheme, the adaptive critical tasks and the optimal control (state variable) schemes were investigated with respect to their use in environmental stressed conditions. The recommended technique for further under environmental stress was the critical task developed by Jex (92). (Author)
