Detecting Intentional Errors Using the Pressures Applied to a Computer Mouse
Intentional errors are considered a form of deceit. In this pilot study, the pressures applied to a computer mouse will be analyzed to determine if it is possible to detect intentional errors. Twenty participants ranging in age from 18 to 21 years performed a task involving intentionally making errors when instructed. A comparison will be made between the pressures applied to a computer mouse when answering the questions with the intention of being correct and with the intention of making an error. The data will need to be normalized for each individual to obtain accurate results. The analysis of the pressures may indicate that there are detectable variations within some individuals. Due to the preliminary nature of this study further research will be required.
