A magnitude estimation procedure is used to measure our perception of the magnitude of different types of stimuli. Students make predictions based on conflicting theories, and test their results against their predictions. A number of variables known to influence the results of a magnitude estimation procedure can be manipulated.
iNSIGHT is a curriculum supplement for experimental psychology, sensation and perception, vision science, and optometry lab classes. There are two different types of iNSIGHT apps: experiments and interactive demonstrations. Experiments are real psychophysical procedures (NOT simulations) that generate real data. Demonstrations illustrate a visual phenomenon and allow students to manipulate the effect. Each lab is complete with a quick-start guide, detailed instructions, background information, and one or more guided exercises. To see how iNSIGHT works, try the FREE iNSIGHT Color Mixing app.
A printable PDF Student Guide that contains the exercises and other supporting materials, and a Teacher Guide are available at www.polyhedronlearning.com/see_apps_insight.html
