14)]. To address this lack of uniqueness, consider a variant of the choice paradigm in which the task is to rank order the alternatives from most preferred to least preferred. Define the random variable U~* = k if alternative a is assigned rank k, k = 1, 2 . . . Following the earlier work of Block and Marschak (1960), Falmagne established three results: 1. The random variables {U,* l a in A} provide a random utility representation (whenever one exists). 2. All random utility representations for a given system of choice probabilities yield identical ranking variables U,,*.

75 is a common choice) is selected to partition the discriminable from the indiscriminable. This defines the algebraic relation ~>x in terms of the probabilities by a >~ b is equivalent to P~,b -> k (26a) a ---x b is equivalent to 1-k < P,,b < k. (26b) It can be shown that for ~>~, to have a threshold representation, Eq. B. 1). 1 The Representational Measurement Approach to Problems 31 B. Conjoint Structures with Additive Representations Let us return to the simpler case of a weak order. The ordinal representation is rather unsatisfactory because of its high degree of nonuniqueness, so one is led to consider situations exhibiting further empirical information that is to be represented numerically.

0 p(yeslN) FIGURE 5 ROCs obtained using a five-point rating scale and varying signal strength over seven levels (the weakest and strongest levels are omitted in the plot). The stimuli were 60 Hz vibrations to the fingertip; the curves are identified by the amplitude of the stimulus in microns. The procedure involved two conditions, represented by the open and closed symbols. 67. 066). Thus, there was a single false alarm estimate for all seven intensities corresponding to each of rating levels.
