Measures of Coorientational Accuracy.
Kim, Hak Soo
Defining coorientational accuracy as how closely one person estimates another's orientation to something cooriented, this paper examines the reasons why the concept has been favored as a criterion for communicating and how it has been measured. It notes problems in measuring accuracy with reference to various ways the orientation situation has been conceptualized, and proposes a new accuracy measurement technique that can be used to obtain a more comprehensive picture of orientation. The paper also examines the issue of accuracy measurement and discusses several types of measures for scoring accuracy, emphasizing their differences. The paper concludes with a suggestion that the concept of inaccuracy, which is not necessarily dependent on accuracy, also be studied. (FL)
