Abstract: The current research focuses on the effect of feedback given to trainees using a computerised training system to improve visual temporal integration. Two training groups were compared: one that received feedback during training (feedback group) and one that did not (no feedback group), with 15 trainees in each group. The results demonstrated that the feedback group's performance was significantly poorer compared to the no feedback group as assessed by two very important measures - number of errors in new sets (measured during training) and number of commission errors in the d2 test of attention (the post-training transfer task). While the guidance hypothesis predicts the decline in the transfer task, the deterioration observed in performance during training is not a common phenomenon. We explain these results by the theory of overconfidence.
