Satoshi EMA, Hiroki ICHIOKA, Taketora YOSHIDA

To clarify mouse operating conditions suitable for junior high school students and their mouse operation skill levels, a mouse operating test was carried out. The test was planned as a three-factor experiment, in which sensitivity of the mouse, configuration of targets, and size of targets were the factors, while operating time and error ratio were measured. The results indicated that, the mouse operating conditions suitable for junior high school students were as follows: the transfer ratio of the mouse was 3.9 and 7.9 dot/mm, the configuration of a target was circular, and the size of a target was larger than 455 mm2

Key words :man-machine interface, personal computer, mouse, operating time, error ratio
