  2. W D Example: Pointing Device Evaluation • Real task: interacting with GUI’s • pointing is fundamental • Experimental task: target acquisition • abstract, elementary, essential

  3. Index of Difficulty (ID ) Index of Performance (IP ) = ID/MT (bits/s) W Bandwidth Throughput D Fitts’ Law (Paul Fitts, 1954) Task difficulty is analogous to information - execution interpreted as human rate of information processing

  4. MT (secs) * * * * * * * * different way to calculate IP * * * * * * * * * * b = slope IP = 1/b * * * * * * * * * * * * a ID (bits) log2(D/W + 1)

  6. What does Fitts’ law really model? Target Width Target Width Velocity (c) (a) (b) Distance

  7. Power law of Practice • task time on nth trial follows a power law • Tn = T1 n-a, where a = .4 (empirically determined) • i.e., you get faster the more times you do it! • applies to skilled behavior (sensory & motor) • does not apply to knowledge acquisition or quality

  8. Hick’s law • Reaction time T = a + blog2(n+1) • Where n is the number of choices • a, b empirically determined constants • log2(n+1) represents amount of information processed by human operator (in Bits) • Example: a telephone switch panel consisting of 10 buttons, any one of which may light up, prompting the operator to press the lit button. • Unequal probabilities:

  10. Beyond pointing: Trajectory based tasks
