Title: System and method of automating multidimensional scaling for psychophysics

Abstract: Disclosed is method, system, and program for defining and administering atest to determine human perceptions of observable samples, such as printedtext or images, sounds, motion pictures, etc. based on multiple factors. Adisplayable test building window includes input fields to receive input onat least one observable sample set according the multidimensional scalingexperiment. Generated in a data gathering window is at least oneperception input field for each observable sample set. The observer iscapable of entering perception information in each input field concerningthe observable samples. Observer perception input on the observablesamples is received and stored. Statistical analysis is then performed onthe entered perception input. A report is generated displaying the resultsof the multidimensional scaling calculations in the form of plots.
