visit the lab for 4-5, one or one-and-a-half hour sessions.

human subject testing which takes a few hours and can be completed anyever
there is internet access.  The lab monitor will be trained to help subjects
understand the consent form and complete the pre-test survey. In addition,
he/she will be trained in how to operate the  sound booth and the software

agreed upon time.  The lab monitor must have a high level of integrity, as
the results of the human subject tests must remain anonymous.

subject testing, or someone with an interest in scientific inquiry in
