The present experiment was an attempt to discover the relative merits of two different practice procedures in developing skill in the performance of psychomotor tasks. Specifically, the aim was to determine whether one trial per day on each of eight different but similar tasks for eight consecutive days would result in better performance on a. test task than would eight trials per day for eight consecutive days each involving a different but similar task.
