When participants performed the straightline, changing-speed task, the hypothesis indicates that the average absolute deviation from a straight line should have been less when they used the M1 tank simulator than when they used the joystick.
The span over which their average absolute deviation from the best-fit line was calculated was 30 s.

The average absolute deviation from the district/year mean is 2.27 for 1,928 trial court elections and 1.14 for 184 appellate court elections.
Although the changes in the average absolute deviation from the district/year mean are statistically significant, the more compelling observation remains the tremendous homogeneity of the vote.
Again, when four or more judges are on the ballot, the average absolute deviation from the district/year mean for the 1,767 elections in districts where no judge was defeated is 1.67.
The average absolute deviations from the official inflation rate computed by SERG from January to November this year ranged from 0.16 percentage points, or an MOE of 6 percent, to a high of 0.39 percentage points, with an MOE of 14.9 percent.
In this case, given the additional data, the average absolute deviations dropped to 2.5 percent or less for each of the three market performance measures.
The average absolute deviations of less that 2.2 percent for each of these measures indicate good predictive accuracy.
