Abstract: The effects of three task selection methods on test performance and training efficiency in a computer-based Flight Management System (FMS) training were investigated. A fixed condition was compared to a learner control condition, and a condition using the participants’ self-rated performance and mental effort. Although, the experimental conditions revealed more positive training effects, no differences were found for training efficiency and test performance. A follow-up study did not confirm the alternative hypothesis that these results were caused by the higher amount of tasks in the fixed condition. Extra analyses suggested that the quality of self-rating needs to be considered in future research.
