  1. For Doppler use the public participant group was evaluated by the public practice raters, and private participants were evaluated by private practice raters. For visual Doppler waveform analysis, a sub-set of 30 printed waveforms from both public and private participants were randomly selected and evaluated by all raters. For audio interpretation all raters evaluated the recorded sounds of the sub-group listed above
