Visual detection and discrimination thresholds are often measured using adaptive staircases, and most studies use transformed (or weighted) up/down methods with fixed step sizes--in the spirit of Wetherill and Levitt (Br J Mathemat Statist Psychol 1965;18:1-10) or Kaernbach (Percept Psychophys 1991;49:227-229)--instead of changing step size at each trial in accordance with best-placement rules--in the spirit of Watson and Pelli (Percept Psychophys 1983;47:87-91). It is generally assumed that a… Expand
