Calibrators

Post by kathyvon »

Why have SO MANY calibration movies been included? I'm getting impatient with them, since I have the impression they're primarily to further the rankings game. I'd rather spend the time looking at the real deal....

think of them as check samples

Post by Cass »

With most types of analysis, frequent (up to 20%) check samples are run to ensure precision and accuracy. In a study where there is a variety of experience, calibration movies help make sure eveyone is on the same page with respect to what they are looking for. Since the researchers want a more random distribution of calibration movies sometimes you get a bunch in a row.

Happy dusting
