Abstract

5 groups var>mg in training context (team versus individual) and skill acquisition (individual, coordination, and communication skills) were compared at transfer on team (coordination of interceptions) and individual (number of interceptions) performance of a simulated radar-controlled aerial intercept task Individual performance wa- unaffected by the training variables, but team performance was a positive function of the emphasis on coordination skills during training When acquisition of coordination skills was held constant, context had no effect on transfer performance Intratcam communications retarded performance but prohibiting these communications during training did not lessen their disruptive effect at transfer. This inhibitory influence of team communications reflected the verbal transmittal of information irrelevant to the task or more readily obtainable from the radar scopes
