Lindberg, L-Å., & Brehmer, B. Progression and hypothesis testing in an inductive inference task. Umeå Psychological Reports No. 121, 1977. - Subjects performance in a two-cue inference task was studied in three experiments as a function of (1) relative cue complexity, (2) relative cue validity, (3) task predictability, and (4) cue-criterion function form.Cues were defined through the velocity (more complex) and starting position (less complex) of a moving light spot. Results indicate that while relative cue complexity does not affect performance, the statistical structure of the task determines subjects' relative cue weighting as well as the final level of task control. These results contradict the Progression hypothesis, formulated for perceptual-motor skill development in tracking, and are consistent with earlier studies within the regression-correlation paradigm.
