Recall or evaluation of chess positions as determinants of chess skill
An alternative approach to chess skill seems appropriate, in which memory effects may function at the evaluation phase, by comparing the memory scores and move-choice protocols of players in six skill categories, using random chess positions.
Acquisition of Route Network Knowledge by Males and Females
Abstract Male and female subjects were tested for spatial ability and were shown slides depicting pairs of intersecting suburban routes. They saw each route either one or three times. Pairs of test…
Extremely long-term persistence of the McCollough effect.
A comparison was made between repeated testing and time-elapse testing, finding the repeated-test group showed a linear decrease of effect against the stated delays, reaching zero at 120 hr, while the time-Elapse groups showed little decline up to 120 hr.
The effects of noise and speech on cognitive task performance.
Five levels of noise that varied in intermittency and meaningfulness, crossed with sex of subject and time of day, supported the prediction that white noise enhances performance on tasks with sequential short-term memory demands and called into question previous generalizations about the effects of noise on performance.
GUIDANCE, RESTRICTION AND KNOWLEDGE OF RESULTS
The offsets of five kinds of training wore compared with the performance of a control group in a manual positioning task. The training conditions were two schedules of mechanical guidance, a form of…

Difficulty is not a useful category for the prediction of transfer efficiency, and that the solution lies in examining the skills involved, although it is probable that many other factors play a part.
Noise, sex and time of day effects in a mathematics task.
Although the effects of circadian arousal were varied, noise consistently produced an effect different from that of time of day, and a complex model, supported by more fac...
