Acceptability, Decision-making and Parsing
We will explore why, and how, to use Signal Detection Theory (SDT) to model acceptability judgment data. I will specifically discuss i) how Receiver Operating Characteristic (ROC) modeling can be applied to rating data, ii) how SDT can be used to distinguish bimodal from unimodal response patterns, and iii) the potential pitfalls of analyzing rating data using standard statistical techniques.
