A Taxonomy of Response Processes.
Miller, Elmo E.
A system for classifying perceptual-motor tasks was devised for the purpose of distinguishing the kinds of training strategy appropriate for each task. A rationale is presented and various task elements are delineated in terms of cue functions, image or mediational functions, and movement tendency. The defined task elements were used in constructing two classifications: one of training strategies, and one of tasks. The classification of training strategies deals with the operational conditions of practice and the diagnosis of the underlying behavioral process. Task sub-classes have been distinguished. Also, the kinds of training strategies have been related to the classes of tasks, as a preliminary investigation of how well the task classification accomplished its purpose. (author/mf)
