Abstract:

An instrument called the Analytic Profile System APS for visual display evaluation was developed and subjected to an initial validation. The APS is based on seven factors derived from a multidimensional scaling analysis of the display-observer interface. Prose statements items were prepared covering these dimensions, were scaled for favorableness, and were then arranged in tetrad forced-choice format. The report presents results of investigations into the dimensional homogeneity, and into the concurrent validity, equivalence, and stability of the developed instrument. A copy of the final form is included. Author
