The Attentional Costs of Interrupting Task Performance at Various Stages

  title={The Attentional Costs of Interrupting Task Performance at Various Stages},
  author={Christopher and Monk and D{\'e}borah and Boehm-Davis and G. Mason},
The visual occlusion technique has received considerable attention in recent years as a method for measuring the interruptible aspects of in-vehicle information system (IVIS) task performance. Because the visual occlusion technique lacks a loading task during “occluded” periods, an alternate method was adopted to provide increased sensitivity to the attentional costs of interruptions on IVIS-style task performance. Participants alternated between performing a VCR programming task and a simple… CONTINUE READING
