The following links provide some useful guidance on the motivation and implementation of balanced experimental designs:

Latin Squares


WebExp is designed to work with recent versions of Java (1.5.0_11 or above) or above). You will need a JVM (Java Virtual Machine) from (also known as Java 2 or J2SE or J2EE). If you are an experimenter wishing to run WebExp, you will need a JRE (Java Runtime Environment). If you want to extend the system, you will need a SDK (Software Development Kit). Participants in your experiment will probably have a suitable JVM in their browser; if not they will need the Java Plugin, which comes in the JRE.
