Abstract

Subjects used one of four information displays to perform a simple decision-making task. Display formats included abstract numerical and graphical representations, and a pictorial format designed to give subjects a more easily usable task representation. Results indicated that the displays differed in effectiveness for aiding the subjects' identification of the optimal action. A conceptualization of display aiding as a filtering mechanism which serves to attenuate task demands is discussed.
