An Evaluation of Greenshields Quality Index and the Acceleration Noise Parameter for Use in Sufficiency Rating Procedures

The Greenshields Quality Index and the Acceleration Noise Parameter were determined for three sections of highway in New Jersey for similar volume groupings. The two methods were analyzed for possible use in a Sufficiency Rating procedure. Neither method was determined to be satisfactory for use in the Sufficiency Rating procedure. The Quality Index does not readily lend itself to standard statistical analysis and both measures require too large a sample size to be practical for use in a Sufficiency Rating procedure.
