Hicks Law ecision time (T) increases with Decision time (T) increases with uncertainty about decision to be made T = a + k*H where H is the entropy of the decision; a and k are constants

Model with Hicks Law = a + * og T = a + k log 2 N N = total items to choose from and e coefficients of the regression line a and k are coefficients of the regression line b = menu branching factor (items per menu)

Model with Hicks Law et’s assume a=0 1 N=64 Let s assume a=0, k=1, N=64 If b = 64: = (log 4)*(log 4) = 6 T= (log 64 64) (log 2 64) = 6 = 8: If b 8: T = (log 8 64)*(log 2 8) = 6 If b = 4: T = (log 4 64)*(log 2 4) = 6

But… onstants not typically a=0 and 1 thus constants not typically a=0 and k=1, thus T = (log b N) * (a + k*log 2 b) T = a*log b N + k*log b N*log 2 b T = a*log b N + k*log 2 N Use largest menus possible subject to ood visual aesthetics good visual aesthetics
