Quick Reference

A restriction on performance imposed by the physiological or psychological limitations of the performer or by the scoring system, that places a minimum on the score that a performer can achieve in a task. For example, there must be a score of more than zero for a test of reaction time. As a person approaches the floor, it becomes increasingly difficult to improve the performance.
