Abstract:

This report presents the results of a pilot study undertaken to evaluate the performance of three interactive graphics control devices--light pen, track ball, and joy stick--for the types of drawing tasks required to determine continuous subjective functions CSFs. This report includes 1 a brief review of CSFS in the context of computer-aided decision making 2 a description of the types of drawing tasks used in generating CSFs and 3 The experimental design, procedures, performance measures, and interpretation of results. The results of this study conclude that the track ball is the best overall control device for use in subsequent CSF studies. Author
