Equal-appearing interval scaling is frequently used to measure stuttering severity. The scale values generated by this procedure are known to be affected by a variety of extraneous conditions. In particular, anchoring and sequence effects are known to result in predictable observer biases. In this paper, these influences are demonstrated for the category scaling of stuttering severity, and suggestions are made for their experimental control.
