Experimental Psychology: A Manual of Laboratory Practice, Vol. II: Quantitative Experiments, part 2: Instructor's Manual
Titchener, Edward B.
A written examination held at the end of the qualitative work 
of this Course is of real value, since it enables the Instructor to 
judge how far the student has wrought his experimental results 
into a systematic psychology (vol. i., S. M., xviii.), and how far 
he has gone in his collateral reading. An examination held at the 
end of the quantitative work is less valuable; indeed, the author 
has, of late years, relied entirely upon the laboratory exercises

treated by some author to whom you have been referred, and (b) from 
your own point of view. 
5. Do auditory sensations obey Weber’s Law? Write fully, with 
historical references. 
6. Describe H. Zwaardemaker’s experiments upon tonal limits. What
