Re: Norms for Seashore Measures

Dear Monica, what kind of abilities do you want to test? 
There are other tests than Seashore for musical abilities.
 Several are also described in the psychoacoustic literature (see also mlp,
free and contemporary matlab toolbox advertised by Massimo Grassi on this
A curiosity: Seashore test is about 30 years closer in time to Paganini's
death than to 2009 ...

    Dear Monica you (really) intend to use the Seashore test? (I highly
appreciate most of Seashore's work, but not this test ...) Prof. Hardi
Fischer - somewhen in the 1960th - did research on new norms for the
Seashore test, if I remember correctly. I think he is still alive and lives
in Switzerland (Greifensee, Kt. Zuerich). I propose you contact him. Good

        Dear list, Does anyone use the Seashore Measures of Musical
Talents? Our lab has a question regarding the norms used for this test. Are
the norms matched to the student's current grade level or to the student's
last completed school grade level? On the testing sheet itself, it asks the
student which grade they last completed, however the wording in the manual
makes us believe that the norms are matched to the current grade level.
Thank you in advance for any help. Best wishes, Monica -- Monica Lee Vakil
