Abstract : Training of time-sharing skills is discussed within an attention framework in which poor time-sharing performance is interpreted to stem from scarcity or inefficient utilization of processing resources. Practice is argued to increase resource availability either by reducing the resource demands of each task, improving coordination, or enhancing the voluntary control on resource allocation. Based on this analysis notions of skill generalizations and implications for the development of training procedures are examined. (Author)
