Sensitivity testing, or analysis of a binary quantal response to a continuous stimulus, has historically been modeled from first principles by assuming a single simple parameterization and imposing the form of a specific cumulative distribution function on the response. Application of the Generalized Linear Model approach admits arbitrary response functions and model complexity in a unified framework and subsumes the historical approach as a specific case. Estimation, hypothesis testing, and confidence interval computations are provided. Application to V50 ballistic limit armor acceptance testing is presented.
