The Psychophysical Methods. Formulae, Tables and Examples
AbstractReviews the book, by Robert S. Woodworth (1936). This is an exceedingly practical and brief manual for calculations t>by the different psychophysical methods for use of students who have a general knowledge of elementary statistics. The manual contains the material for handling the method of limits, the method of average error and the methods of constant stimuli and of single stimuli. In each case examples are given which are carried through calculation and, where necessary, the tables of constants are included. Where necessary, alternate methods of calculation are demonstrated. It would seem that the student, with a knowledge of general statistics, could take this manual and develop competency in the procedures of the psychophysical methods without undue difficulty.
