Psychometric Functions for Children's Detection of Tones in Noise.
Allen, Prudence; Wightman, Frederic
Journal of Speech and Hearing Research, v37 n1 p205-15 Feb 1994
A 2-alternative forced-choice task was used to measure the ability of 18 children (ages 3 to 5) to detect varying levels of sinusoids in noise. Results showed that, on average, the children's thresholds were higher and the slopes of their psychometric functions were shallower than those of adults, though between-subjects variability was large.
