Abstract : Adaptive human performance measurement is measurement in which the subject's response is fed back to affect the measurement process, modifying stimuli, problems, or the measurement apparatus. Research from related fields was analyzed to search out different adaptive measurement techniques. The most important other technique was 'measuring by modeling,' in which the parameters of a model which adapts to match subject performance are the measurements. Experimental demonstrations of adaptive measurement include: (1) fixed and adaptive measurements of visual acuity; (2) a computer simulation of adaptive visual acuity runs; and (3) adaptive measurements of shape perception and of auditory binaural intensity discrimination. Application of the technique is discussed. (Author)
