Straightening Out Learning Curves
Corlett, E. N.; Morecombe, V. J.
Personnel Management, 2, 6, 14-19, Jun '70
The basic mathematical theory behind learning curves is explained, together with implications for clerical and industrial training, evaluation of skill development, and prediction of future performance. Brief studies of textile worker and typist training are presented to illustrate such concepts as the reduction fraction (a consistent decrease in time per operation each time the number of operations doubles) and the formation of learning plateaus.
