Can humans learn visual categories using corrective feedback, as computers do? Participants learned the handwriting style of three writers. Group one studied labeled handwriting samples; group two was presented unlabeled samples (no author name), made a response, and received corrective feedback regarding the author. Performance on this test was similar for each group, suggesting no advantage for either study method. It is theorized that a longer study phase may be needed for corrective feedback learning to occur.
