Abstract:

Performance tests which are truly standardized must be administered in a way that will minimize variation due to operator intervention and errors. Through such technological developments as low-cost digital computers and digital logic modules, automatic test administration without restriction of test content has become possible. A semiautomated test system SATS which incorporates programmable digital logic modules for control has been developed to allow an experimental psychologist, unassisted and with a minimum of special training, to set up and modify tests or experiments thus, it is especially useful for exploratory studies. The structure of the SATS is described and an example is presented to clarify the operations involved in its use. Author
