Effects of Office Noise on Annoyance and Task Performance
Researchers in the Graduate Program in Acoustics are looking for participants for a study related to office noise. The experiment will take approximately 1.5-2 hours of your time. The experiment will consist of listening to noises that occur in typical open-office environments, e.g. air conditioning noise, and people talking, phones ringing, etc. You will be asked to complete a series of performance tasks and provide ratings about the acoustic environments. Your heart rate will also be measured through three electrodes attached to your body. The office noise signals will be played at a controlled volume. The compensation for your voluntary participation is a $20 Amazon gift card.
