Abstract : A computer program for the IBM 7094 has been written to perform several analyses of learning data. Among these are: (1) a principal components analysis originated by Tucker (1960); (2) an orthogonal procrustes rotation of the results of the Tucker analysis; (3) plotting of individual learning curves; (4) plotting of individual curves of the conditional probabilities of response, contingent on reward. The program's size limitations are: (1) number of subjects must be less than or equal to 100; (2) number of trials must be less than or equal to 1000; (3) number of factors must be less than or equal to 10.
