Abstract:

A pilot experiment was conducted to determine preliminary estimates of interpretation performance at high rates of speed. Various factors of relevance in assessing such performance are discussed, using experimental results to illustrate their application. Requirements for A MORE COMPREHENSIVE AND STATISTICALLY RELIABLE EXPERIMENT ARE OUTLINED, AND SUGGESTED AREAS FOR FURTHER RESEARCH ARE DISCUSSED. The small number of samples of imagery and subjects made results only suggestive with respect to application. Performance measurement is presented as a complex function of several factors, including conciseness, relevance, accuracy, and rate. These performance measures were applied to the experimental results for illustrative purposes only, and are not to be understood as implying higher reliability than is inherent in the statistically low reliability of the data. The tendency for redundancy of reports to increase with viewingresponse time suggests that prior training of interpreters in rapid recognition and reporting would lead to improved performance.
