A Model for Predicting Clinically Relevant Group Differences of Open-Response Tests A comparison is made between testing for differences in group means and testing to assign an individual subject to one of two populations. A distinction is made between sample means of speech-discrimination tests which are statistically different and clinically useful speech-discrimination tests for properly classifying an individual.

A comparison is made between testing for differences in group means and testing to assign an individual subject to one of two populations. A distinction is made between sample means of speech-discrimination tests which are statistically different and clinically useful speech-discrimination tests for properly classifying an individual. The probabilities of misclassification are discussed.
