d′ is an estimate of δ, a measure of the degree of sensory difference between two products, that can be obtained easily using tables, from the proportion of difference tests performed correctly. Tables of δ are available for the 2-AFC, 3-AFC, triangular and duo-trio tests. Tables for calculating the variance of d′ for these tests are provided in this paper. They can be used for comparison of d's, especially for those obtained from different difference tests. A simple procedure is described here for computing values for the variance of d′. Having obtained the variance, confidence intervals for d′ can be obtained, tests of significance for d′ can be made as well as tests of whether two or more d's are significantly different. The formula and tables for the number of judgments required for the estimation of δ are given also in this paper.
