    Abstract

    A hedonic scale was developed with 15 pictorial “Smiley” ratings. This scale was found useful for nonparametric assessment of quality by non-trained panels. A precise method is described for reporting median results. A method is described for quantitatively comparing rating distributions of similar products.
