Abstract

Statement of the problem. The purpose of the study was (1) to determine the comparative accuracy of two electronic meter calibration procedures, and (2) to evaluate the readability of a variety of voltmeters.

These were accomplished by the analysis of distributions of psychophysical errors and psychological mistakes which were produced by the undergraduate engineering students as they made specified voltage settings, read the various meter scales, and computed the resulting correction factors.
