On simultaneous monitoring and tracking.
J Appl Psychol 1975; 60(1):100-105
The effects of time-sharing between a tracking and monitoring task presented on the same visual display are examined and the possibility that knowledge of results on the monitoring task might offset harmful effects of timesharing is evaluated. Also studied are the effects of various tracking frequencies and their possible interaction with knowledge of results. Findings indicate that time- sharing between monitoring and tracking degrade performance. Groups which receive knowledge of results neither improve nor decline in monitoring performance when the time-sharing load is imposed.
