Abstract : Research conducted in this project covered four related topics: A theoretical and empirical examination of the taxonomic structure of perceptual speed abilities, both in general, and in the context of predictive validity for task performance; Extension of previous work by Ackerman and Kanfer on the determinants of individual differences in skill acquisition by examining performance after extended practice, and by examining performance after a non-practice retention period; Integration of ability and non-ability predictors of individual differences in skill acquisition; Using theory and empirical data obtained in previous Air Force sponsored research and the current program, interactions between aptitudes and instructional treatments were examined.
