Application of a Probability Model Based on the Binomial Distribution to Speech-Discrimination Scores The performance of 3426 subjects on 100-word lists from Northwestern University Auditory Test #6 was analyzed to determine the application of a binomial model previously suggested by Thornton and Raffin (1978). It was found that the critical differences based on this model can be used to describe accurately the variability ... Research Article

The performance of 3426 subjects on 100-word lists from Northwestern University Auditory Test #6 was analyzed to determine the application of a binomial model previously suggested by Thornton and Raffin (1978). It was found that the critical differences based on this model can be used to describe accurately the variability associated with speech-discrimination scores.
