rainman: Perception of points in a swarm

Description Format Details Source Examples

Description

Five raters were asked to guess the number of points in a swarm for 10 different figures (which - unknown to the raters - were each repeated three times).

Format

A data frame with 30 observations on the following 6 variables.

SAND

The true number of points in the swarm. Each picture is replicated thrice

ME

Ratings from judge 1

TM

Ratings from judge 2

AJ

Ratings from judge 3

BM

Ratings from judge 4

LO

Ratings from judge 5

Details

The raters har approximately 10 seconds to judge each picture, and the thought it was 30 different pictures. Before starting the experiment they were shown 6 (unrelated) pictures and were told the number of points in each of those pictures. The SAND column contains the picture id and the true number of points in the swarm.
