EFFECTS OF LEARNING IN TERMS OF CONFLICTING FEEDBACK

Abstract

This article describes the process and results of an experimental study to establish the relation between effectiveness of learning and contradictory feedback. The tasks of hand-eye coordination were used in the experiment. It is shown that in the context of conflicting feedback there is a strong tendency to take the best result of the presented alternatives as their own. Using such strategy, however, leads to increased efficiency of learning. Furthermore, it was found that repeated errors play an important role in learning, providing the most accurate repetition of reactions.
