Abstract

This tutorial is organized in six modules - visual psychophysics and perception, motor control, memory, problem-solving, reading, and multivariate methods, such as, Pathfinder, multidimensional scaling, and cluster analysis. Each module contains background to help understand the method (an historical introduction to the development of the method and the problems to which researchers originally applied it and a description of one or two famous experiments featuring the method), a description telling how to perform the method, including demonstrations. The description and demonstration will focus on applying the method to user testing. Following the description and demonstration, for selected methods, the class will participate in a practice exercise in which real data will be collected (using class members as test subjects) and analyzed during the session.
