ABSTRACT
This study illustrates an analysis-of-variance technique for describing the use of information by persons making complex judgments. The Ss were two stock-brokers who rated the growth potential of stocks on the basis of 11 factors taken from Standard & Poor's reports. The technique proved capable of providing a precise quantitative description of configural and nonconfigural information utilization. Each broker exhibited a substantial amount of configural processing. The technique appears to have promise for providing experts with insight into their own processes and for teaching and evaluating "student" judges.
