There are several types of expert knowledge, including factual (declarative), skills (procedural), and tacit knowledge. Expertise represents a high level of achievement in one or more of these domains. These types of knowledge are described, along with how they are acquired, and how they are maintained. The structure of cognitive individual-differences constructs of achievement, aptitude, and intelligence is also examined. Together with interests and motivation, investment of cognitive resources...

Over 100 years have passed since Binet and Simon proposed scales for assessment of intelligence of children to predict academic success and failure. The extension of these assessments to adults largely resulted from efforts of psychologists to provide insights for military selection in World War I. At the time, relatively little thought was given to how adult intelligence might differ from child and adolescent intelligence. Traditional approaches for assessing adult intelligence have largely sur...

Work stress is an important determinant of employee health and wellness. The occupational health community is recognizing that one contributor to these relationships may be the presence of negative off-job reactivity to work, which we argue involves continued thoughts directed towards work (cognitive reactivity), continued negative mood stemming from work (affective reactivity), and the alteration of post-work behaviours in response to work factors (behavioural reactivity). We explored the relat...

Systems that supported operators with higher levels of information-analysis and decision-selection automation had varying effects on human performance and situation awareness. We investigated whether information-processing and working-memory abilities moderate the effects of automation on human performance and situation awareness. To investigate such effects, we measured the information-processing ability and working-memory capacity of 60 participants. We also assessed their performance and situ...

Abstract Performance on speeded ability tests, in contrast to power tests, reflects an individual's ability to get answers correct and to do so rapidly. However, with speeded tests, overall performance scores represent some unknown combination of the individual's strategy toward greater speed or higher accuracy. Scoring methods, such as penalties for wrong answers, are often imposed to either encourage examinees to adopt a specific speed-accuracy tradeoff strategy, or to attempt to derive perfor...

Skilled performance, whether it involves rapid and accurate motor movements (such as playing a video game or using a scalpel in the operating room) or a high degree of domain knowledge (such as finding a small tumor in an X-ray or writing ajournai article) typically involves learning and practice over an extended period of time. In light of recent theory and empirical research, I consider two enduring issues associated with skill acquisition: whether individuals become more alike in performance ...
