error scores

error scores

in motor control and learning studies involving the performance of multiple trials to attain a criterion such as hitting a target or producing a given force, error scores are used to quantify the deviations of attempts around the target. absolute error the mean deviation of the attempts from the target, disregarding the direction of the errors, used as a measure of accuracy; constant error the distance from the target to the mean of the attempts, taking into account the direction of the error, used as another measure of accuracy; variable error the standard deviation of scores, used as a measure of consistency.

The active and passive reproduction error scores for the ankle joint position sense for 10[degrees] and 20[degrees] of ankle inversion and 15[degrees] and 30[degrees] of ankle plantarflexion and the scores for the threshold to detect passive motion, either to inversion or plantarflexion, are presented in Table 2.

Kagan (1966) argued that impulsive individuals tend to have low latency scores and high error scores.
al (1966) trained children merely to delay their responses, without teaching them improved problem solving strategies, they found that response latencies lengthened; however, in contrast to Egeland's findings, error scores did not improve.
10) In some patients with an acquired colour deficiency, the error scores can be high and it may be difficult to define an axis of confusion from the polar diagram.
Rate, accuracy, and error scores on the Pepper VSRT were recorded and matched to the PRL recorded on the SLO.
On unreinforced tests of these trained relations and of their simple symmetrical inversions (BA, CB) subjects showed low error scores and short response latencies from the start of testing.
The total error score is the sum of all the error scores for the individual caps (score - 2).
