Recommendations for the Subjective Evaluation of Sensory Experience

Benjamin Rainer, Christian Timmerer, Markus Waltl


Selecting and adopting the appropriate assessment method for conducting subjective quality assessments is a challenging task. The method decides whether the assessment is successful in delivering the correct answers to previously set up hypotheses. Therefore, in this paper we provide recommendations on test methods used in the domain of Sensory Experience. The proposed test methods comprise single stimulus and double stimulus methods. These test methods were used in previous studies and are presented in combination with the results of the subjective quality assessments with which they were used. Furthermore, we briefly outline our test setup, test design, and test content for assessing Sensory Experience which have been validated through conducted assessments.
