Detection response tasks: how do different settings compare?

Abstract

Detection response tasks (DRTs) have been used in many different laboratory settings and their usage continues to spread. The degree to which the DRT is replicable and produces concurring results is an important characteristic of its validity. The current article presents a comparison of DRT performance across two separate experimental settings. Results are discussed in terms of how the DRTs (specifically: remote or peripheral detection task and tactile detection task) compare with one another, including DRT reaction times in their relative baseline units. Assessments show that DRT results are comparable across different experimental settings, demonstrating the DRT as a valid measurement method.
