Abstract

Recent studies by Eckstrand (1) and Ellis, Montgomery, and Underwood (2) have been concerned with the effects of effortfulness on performance and reminiscence. Eckstrand varied the amount of spring tension against which the stylus had to be depressed in the pursuit rotor task, while Ellis, Montgomery, and Underwood varied the work-surface height of a block-turning task. In both studies, the effortful manipulation failed to depress performance.
