Computer Programs for the Semantic Differential: An Update and Expansion.
Lawson, Edwin D.; Metivier, Barbara L.
Seven computer programs were written for use with the semantic differential and two additional programs were modified or expanded. The nine programs can compute the following: means, standard deviations, and standard errors on nine subscales and on evaluation, potency, and activity factors (EPA); Osgood D values for all concepts; correlations between EPA scores and D values; tests of significance within and between data samples; and data matrices for construction of a three-dimensional model based upon EPA scores or Osgood D scores. The programs are written in FORTRAN IV for processing on a Burroughs 4700 with 109K. Up to 109 adjective pairs with nine subscales can be accomodated. (The nine programs are appended.) (Author/CP)
