  1. 1. A few aspects of aircraft noise

    Författare :Crispin Dickson; Shafiquzzaman Khan; Mendel Kleiner; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; paired comparison; sorting based paired comparison; sorting algorithms; mergesort; quicksort; aircraft sound synthesis; aircraft noise; sound quality; tonal effects; angle positions; flight conditions; methods of equalization; cognition; Acoustics; Akustik;

    Sammanfattning : A few aspects of aircraft noise were evaluated. These were (i) methods of subjective evaluations, (ii) effects of equalization and (iii) the effects of cognitive aspects.In the first paper, sorting algorithms were used instead of conventional paired comparison method in order to reduce the number of pairs in the evaluation of subjective judgments.

  2. 2. Some properties of measures of disagreement and disorder in paired ordinal data

    Författare :Hans Högberg; Elisabeth Svensson; Sture Holm; Örebro universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; agreement; augmented ranks; categorical data; disorder; jackknife; paired ordinal data; rating scales; sample size; sampling distribution; simulation; U-statistics; variance; SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; Statistics; Statistik; Statistics; Statistik;

    Sammanfattning : The measures studied in this thesis were a measure of disorder, D, and a measure of the individual part of the disagreement, the measure of relative rank variance, RV, proposed by Svensson in 1993. The measure of disorder is a useful measure of order consistency in paired assessments of scales with a different number of possible values. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Drum sound from floor coverings - objective and subjective assessment

    Författare :Ann-Charlotte Johansson; Teknisk akustik; []
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; vakuumteknik; vibrationer; akustik; hydraulik; Maskinteknik; vacuum technology; vibration and acoustic engineering; hydraulics; acoustic standard; Mechanical engineering; tapping machine; veneer flooring; parquet flooring; binaural recording; foot impact; loudness; sound quality; listening test; paired comparisons; walking sound; drum sound; building acoustics; psychoacoustics; laminate flooring;

    Sammanfattning : Drum sound is the sound produced when an object, such as a foot, hits the flooring in the room in which the receiving ear is located. Drum sound has attracted interest in recent years, particularly due to an increased use of thin floating floor constructions, such as veneer or laminate flooring, which can produce loud and sharp walking sound.

  4. 4. Valence-Level Dependent Presentation-Order Effects in Preference Judgments

    Författare :Mats P. Englund; Åke Hellström; William M. Petrusic; Stockholms universitet; []
    Nyckelord :SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; Preference judgment; order effects; stimulus valence; sensation weighting; feature matching; comparison direction; Psychology; Psykologi; psykologi; Psychology;

    Sammanfattning : Reversal of the stimulus-presentation order often affects the outcome in paired stimulus comparison. Psychophysicists have found that the size and direction of the order effects depend on the compared stimuli’s magnitudes, but this magnitude dependence does not seem to have been recognized previously in cognitive research on preference judgment.

  5. 5. Investigating and Validating Spoken Interactional Competence: Rater Perspectives on a Swedish National Test of English

    Författare :Linda Borger; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; interactional competence; Swedish national test of English; paired speaking test; Common European Framework of Reference for Languages CEFR ; socio-cognitive validation framework;

    Sammanfattning : This thesis aims to explore different aspects of validity evidence from the raters’ perspective in relation to a paired speaking test, part of a high-stakes national test of English as a Foreign Language (EFL) in the Swedish upper secondary school. Three empirical studies were undertaken with the purpose of highlighting (1) the scoring process, (2) the construct underlying the test format, and (3) the setting and test administration. LÄS MER
