A brief experimental study is undertaken to determine the utility of a new pilot rating scale in a fixed base tracking task. The scale is the nonadjectival, nonordinal, linear scale introduced by C.V. Schufeldt. The "subcritical" tracking task developed by Jex, McDonnell and Phatak is utilized in the experiment. The scale's potential for detecting minor changes in system acceptability is demonstrated. (Author)
