Three experiments assessed four types of aircraft cockpit displays. One display was a circular format whereas the other three were vertical formats. Of the three vertical displays, one had a moving pointer, the remaining two had vertical bars whose length indicated engine status. The stimuli were prepared on 5 multiplied by 5 cm slides. Each slide portrayed either 2, 3, or 4 engines using a particular display-type. On any slide, exactly one of these engines was out of tolerance, i. e. , above or below a particular level. Half of the slides were prepared with one engine above tolerance, and half with one engine below. Subjects were instructed to view each slide and report which engine was out of tolerance. Response time and errors were the dependent measures.
