What about Knowledge of Results?

Did I miss some posts?

I saw a flurry of posts last week which were prompted by Bruce's
"Knowledge of Results" question. Jeff said one thing, then Rick
another, then Bill another, then Bruce... Was an agreement
reached, or are y'all still arguing?

Before Rick and Bruce return to their eternal boxing match, would
someone mind highlighting whatever conclusions have been reached
about the control processes used in the experiment?

Thanks in Advance,
Shannon

We dovetailed into the "perception of error" thing.

processes used in the experiment?

KR is either a disturbance to a controlled variable (as it in experiments
where the subject is controlling the relationship between what he says ("A"
or "B") and what the experimenter says (the "KR, "A" or "B"). KR is a
controlled variable in experiments like the hot/cold game where where the
subject is controlling the state of the KR itself (the words hot or cold).

Now, back to boxing;-)

I don't understand. Can you diagram the control processes for Bruce's
KR experiment? (I do not need the hot/cold game diagrammed. I
understand that one.)
