7 8.0 6.0 6.0 violin is which; and each plays the violins in a
8 7.0 6.5 4.0 randomly determined sequence (BCA, ACB, etc.).

10 6.0 7.0 3.0 They are not informed that the instruments are classic
masterworks; all they know is that they are playing
three different violins. After each violin is played, the player rates the instrument
on a 10-point scale of overall excellence (1=lowest,10=highest). The players are
told that they can also give fractional ratings, such as 6.2 or 4.5, if they wish.
The results are shown in the adjacent table. For the sake of consistency, the
n=10 players are listed as "subjects."
