Precursor criteria for assessing the effectiveness of technical ear training programs.

Three precursor criteria were developed for assessing the effectiveness of technical ear training programs (TETPs): the program must have clearly stated, professionally relevant goals; performance relating to the goals must be measured; and performance must be measured separately from the training program on an independent task. Eight spectral-based student-targeted TETPs were reviewed against these criteria. The review found that none of the eight programs met all precursor criteria as users` performance was measured on the TETP itself or on a similar task to that which students had previously trained on. The deployment of a TETP that met the precursor criteria was then detailed; however, despite meeting the criteria, a large-scale study did not provide evidence of the TETP`s effectiveness.
