The Psychometric Laboratory is located in the west wing of the third floor of Davie Hall, the home of the Psychology Department. The Laboratory houses the Quantitative Psychology and Cognitive Psychology graduate training programs. The faculty, students, staff, and visitors of the programs have offices in the Laboratory, providing easy and informal contact between members of the programs.
In addition to office space, Laboratory facilities also include the L.L. Thurstone Seminar Room, where advanced seminars in quantitative and cognitive psychology are held, and the John B. Carroll Library, housing an extensive collection of journals and books related to quantitative psychology, psychometrics, and related fields. There is also space dedicated to faculty research programs, rooms for conducting experiments, a room housing the network and file servers, and a kitchen.
The Laboratory's computing facilities are extensive. Windows, MacOS and Unix machines are available for data analysis, for the development of new mathematical models and data-analytic procedures, and for the conduct of experiments. Every faculty and staff member and nearly every graduate student has a private computer.
In addition, the Laboratory's internal ethernet system provides access to shared printers, file servers, and network servers, as well as to the larger computing systems maintained by UNC Academic Technology and Networks and to the Internet.
