We describe a standardised audio listening test known as MUSHRA, used to
evaluate the perceptual quality of intermediate-quality audio algorithms
(for example MP3 compression). The nature of the test involves aspects
of continuous rating as well as ranking of items. We discuss the statistics
used to analyse test data, in light of recent experiences conducting a
user group study.
