[from Jeff Vancouver 981103.1135 EST]
Attached is my latest rendition of my cost of schedule model. This version
incorporates two features not in the previous. First, to match the
blocking of the perception for trials 8 and 11, I have created a look-up in
"perceptual sensitivity" that mimics the blocking of the input in my
research paradigm. For some reason, the lookup is lagged by one trial
(that is, it is on trial 9 and 12 in the lookup table even though it is
trials 8 and 11 on which the effect occurs).
The second addition is for the goal given by the experimenter. To more
convincingly demonstrate the nature of control, I change the cost of
schedule goal for trials 3 through 6 in the research environment. To
parallel that in the model, I have added a control system that monitors the
goal from the environment. It never achieves control, but it does
determine the cost goal for each trial. Once again, I use a lookup to
accomplish this, and once again, it is lagged by 1 trial for some reason
(this is a detail I am not going to worry about).
That this last system never achieves control is simply an artifact of not
including the experimenter (who is pleased to some level) in the
environment. Perhaps I will work on that for the next rendition. In the
meantime, I have to figure out how to please the reviewers.

I just received the Nov-Dec issue of Harvard Business Review.
The letter I shared with the list a while back is in fact there.
Boy, do I feel good.
