Abstract

This study looks at the performance model of mouse movement from the following three viewpoints: (a) effects of the direction of movement on the performance model, (b) optimal formula to define the size of targets in the performance model, and (c) comparison of fit to the pointing time among five performance models. As a result, it was shown that the fit to the experimental data did not differ among four conditions of direction of movement. The contribution of the performance model was found to be the highest when the square of the area of a target is used as the size of a target. Moreover, the performance model based on the multiple-regression analysis was better than that based on Fitts's law.
