Abstract : This report presents a description of a programmed environment research laboratory that was designed and constructed to support functional analyses of individual and team performance effectiveness viewed conceptually within the context of a small-scale microsociety. The technical and organizational merits of a behavioral program, which structures team members' use of resources in a disciplined yet meaningful way, are suggested as a promising solution to the problem of motivating and monitoring individual and team performances. Summarized are previous research emphases and findings as are more recent analyses of effects of replacing an established team participant with a novitiate team member. Finally, the results of such a 'replacement analysis, which was undertaken with a Team Multiple Task Performance Battery (TMTPB), are presented to demonstrate the dynamic interplay between individual and team performance effectiveness.
