The linear relation between archaeodose and attenuation factor of beta-radiation permits the evaluation of the age from the gradient and the environmental dose-rate from the intercept of an appropriate plot.
The technique has been tested with quartz grains extracted from well-dated 700–800-years-old bricks.
The differences on each dimension can be statistically analyzed.
If respondents, despite the instructions, circle the colon, you can score the dimension using a midpoint.
The basic age equation of thermoluminescence dating contains two types of quantities, namely accumulated dose and dose-rates which, on closer inspection, are dependent on the size of grains used in the dating experiment.
Here is an example of semantic differential results comparing the connotative meaning of a university and state college system.
I guess it was because I'd heard two or three stories of the woman being seven years older, so I'd sort of decided that was the outer limit of age difference acceptability. (And I would hit 31 a month before his next birthday.) Feeling defeated, I sat at the small wooden table in Starbucks, where I was meeting Kevin for the first time since my startling discovery. In case you're wondering, I married that guy eight months later.
I don't know why this one year made such a difference to me.
Do not put all the "good" adjectives on one side, as it might bias the responses.
Provide clear instructions for the respondent so that they put their marks in the right place. Scoring The blanks are numbered from 1 to 7 and then the responses are averaged for each dimension.
