Experimental design and analysis for symbol-training effectiveness research are also described. This review would be helpful in formulating research plans and methodology for conducting other symbol-training studies. 1 Introduction The term signs, icons, symbols, pictograms, pictographs, and glyphs often appear in the literature and seem to be interchange when referring to physical objects, concepts, or functions. Even though users may guess what an icon represents the very first time, training could improve the process of understanding the meaning of an icon [1].

The length of the scenarios and the large number of symbols trained might have overloaded the memory. 2. Participants might not process the accident scenario sufficiently. , age). Regarding symbol design, training was still be effective for well-designed symbols, but poorly designed symbols may not be successfully understood in the 1-month posttraining test [10]. For trainee characteristics, symbol knowledge decreased as age increased before and after training [5]. Lesch [9] found that older participants (50 to 67 years) performed much more poorly than younger participants (18 to 35 years) in comprehension of warning symbols, both before and after training.
