I. Introduction:
Consumer acceptability tests are one form of quantitative affective test. Quantitative affective tests are those which determine the responses of a large group (50 to 400) of consumers to a set of questions regarding preference, liking, sensory attributes, etc.
The analysts use Hedonic Scale Rating Test for determining the consumer acceptability of the product sample. This method shows the degree of liking for a product sample to be evaluated and indirectly shows preference. However, it does not show the reason for acceptability. In addition, it cannot be used for quality control purposes since it does not show product development.

II. Objectives:

1. To learn to conduct acceptability tests. 2. To know and understand the different types of consumer acceptability tests 3. To understand the principle involved in consumer acceptability test 4. To learn and understand how to analyze data from consumer acceptability test

III. Materials: * Watermelon wine * Master sheet * Sample containers * Trays * Cups * Napkins * Graduated cylinder

IV. Method: A. Determine the project objective. B. Determine test objective. C. Select/identify the appropriate test technique. D. Prepare the master sheet. 1. Fill up the date, sample, sensory test, panelist number, treatment and rep. no. 2.…...

Torsion Test Lab Report

...Lab 1: Tension Test Andrew Thiher 2/17/2012 Introduction: In this lab, we tested the material properties of 836 cold rolled steel, T351-2024 aluminum, 110 copper, grey cast iron, and high-density polyethylene (HDPE) by subjecting each material to a tensile force until it fractured. Using data gathered, we graphed the stress-strain graph and determined specific properties for each material. These properties included whether the specimen was ductile or brittle, yield stress, and tensile strength. For equations used, see appendix 2. Experimental Apparatus: Each material was prepared for the experiment by marking the initial length as two inches by means of a gage punch and hammer. Additionally, calipers were used to measure the initial diameter. The sample was then screwed into the tensile testing machine and an extensometer was attached to measure elongation and collect data. The extensometer remained attached until the material reached its proportional limit, at this point it was removed, and the remaining data was collected using machinist scales prepared in .05 inch increments. Each time the gauge length reached the preset machinist scale increment, the live load from the computer was recorded. This process was repeated until the specimen fractured. Once the specimen fractured, the final gauge length and smallest diameter in the necking region were recorded. Calculations: [pic] |Property |Cold Steel |110...

Critique Report Yahoo Consumer Direct

...Critique Report Yahoo Consumer Direct Was the research well designed? Was it a good research? The research is an example of a good research and well designed as follows. Firstly, the research purpose is clearly defined as a tool to evaluate the effectiveness of Yahoo banner ads from ad exposure to shopping behaviour. The scope is limited to the ad placement on Yahoo only. Secondly, the research procedure is well detailed, e.g. the steps to acquire participants, well informed consent, sampling methods, representativeness and data collection procedures. Other search engine could also conduct similar research under these settings. Thirdly, the research design is well planned with identified constructs like “awareness” and “persuasiveness” of the banner ads. Fourthly, high ethical standards were applied as they already got consent from the Homescan panels to opt for joining the program in which their website visiting record will be tracked. Moreover, the limitation of research is described at the very beginning that the number of internet users are only an estimate. Adequate analysis could be provided as Yahoo can directly obtain figures via the database from ACNielsen. Furthermore, detailed executive summary over 30 pages are compiled after research. The research conclusion is justified as they are drawn from the data collected with no prior assumptions. Finally, Yahoo is an experienced researcher on such kind of purchasing behaviour research as they have conducted research......

Consumer Behaviour Report (the Sherlock Holmes Brand)

...eight years of intense public pressure, who took to the streets wearing black arm-bands and demanding that he bring Holmes back. Few fictional characters have risen to the prominence and longevity as the Baker Street sleuth. Like any well-crafted piece of work, Sherlock Holmes has been an inspiration in his field – informing identities of later fictional characters, from Batman to Dr. Gregory House. Sherlock Holmes, according to The New York Times, is the 3rd most read publication on the planet behind the Bible and the Dictionary. There are 357 Holmes Societies around the world and thousands of dedicated Websites. Stories featuring Sherlock Holmes have been translated into 84 languages so far. As part of my study of this brand’s consumer base, I have taken two modern renditions of this age-old brand: namely, a series of movies starring Robert Downey Jr. and the brilliant BBC version starring the captivating newcomer and rising star, Benedict Cumberbatch. BRAND RE-INVENTIONS Each age gets the Sherlock Holmes it deserves. During World War II, we got the ineffably patriotic (and anachronistic) Sherlock of Basil Rathbone; in the seventies, Nicole Williamson gave us the drug-addicted Holmes. Later still, we had the twitchily neurotic Holmes of Jeremy Brett. Each performer's portrayal (and the same is true for Watson) was informed by the form and pressure of the age in which he lived, what the society of that time valued, condemned or overlooked. However, in most......

As renewed volatility entered global markets, consumers reacted by reining in spending and consumption intentions.” In the latest round of the survey, conducted between May 4 and May 21, 2012, consumer confidence declined three points to 100 in Asia Pacific, four points to 88 in North America, and two points to 96 in Latin America.

Consumer Behavior Chocolate Taste Test

...Marketing research develops an understanding of the target demographic and aids in the success of a product or service. Consumer perception is arguably the most essential factor in the sale of a product. The consumer chooses their purchase based on a combination of observations that have developed into their opinion of a product. By manipulating the consumer perception through advertising and other marketing techniques, the product can increase market share. Our experiment measures the effects marketing and taste on brand preference and perception of our subjects in regards to various brands of pure milk chocolate. Chocolate has become a staple in the childhood of young Americans. For as long as children can choose what they eat, chocolates and sweets have been the favorable options. Therefore, brand preferences have been chosen years ago and brand loyalty has been established at an early age. We have put this brand loyalty to the test by offering a blind chocolate-tasting experiment. By conducting this blind taste-test, our subjects will choose their favorite chocolates based purely on taste, eliminating the marketer-driven factors such as advertising and brand value. The subjects will have no knowledge of which chocolate they’re taste, resulting in an even playing field for the different brands. Without the factors of advertising, brand value and other marketer-driven variables, chocolate preference can truly be chosen based on taste alone. This experiment will help......

Consumer Behavior - Taste Test

...Taste Test: Part I Following our survey findings that KOI was rated as the best tasting bubble tea among its competitors, we set out to test whether the taste perception of consumers were influenced by brand. In order to do so, we conducted a blind taste test. For our taste test, we used 3 brands of bubble tea which is KOI, Gong Cha and Each-a-Cup as they were associated together most of the times. Our test object was Milk Tea with Pearls as it was the most popular drink for all the three brands. We intended to use the random sampling method to select our experiment subjects from the general public; however, circumstances do not allow us to conduct the taste test in public or to arrange for the members of the public to congregate in an enclosed setting. Thus, our subjects were chosen from the SMU student population. We mitigated the sampling bias by picking students from diverse races and ages while keeping a balance between gender sizes. We used a within-subjects design as there were only 33 subjects. Lastly, the subjects were given a sip of water after each tasting to mitigate the influence of the taste of one drink over the other through quick, repeated tasting. During the test, subjects were not informed of the individual brands of bubble tea. Three cups (labeled A, B and C) of Milk Tea with Pearls were served to each subject. The order of the cups presented to them were randomly arranged to prevent any order bias. Ample time was given to the subjects to taste the......
