|2.||Calibrate the perceived intensity scales of the target and blanks by the aid of Master Scaling, preferably at individual level.|
|3.||If possible determine the response distribution for detection of the target from the data obtained with the method of constant stimuli.|
|4.||If possible, check the "effective threshold" or "extrapolated threshold" for the target by evaluating its index of detectability.|
|5.||If possible check the "extrapolated threshold" (from magnitude estimates) also for the master stimuli by evaluating its index of detectability.|
|6.||Check the relationship between the perceived intensity (from magnitude estimates transformed to Master Scale) and detectability.|
The research was sponsored by the Swedish Council for Building Research and the Swedish Environment Protection Board. Valuable comments on the manuscript were given by Professor Hannes Eisler.
