California Consonant Test©

The California Consonant Test© (CCT) is considered a word recognition (or speech discrimination) test. It is a closed-set word recognition test. The patient is given a paper score sheet with four multiple choices per item. He or she is asked to check the item heard on the recording.  Watch the video! (See below.)

The California Consonant Test© is particularly sensitive to high frequency hearing loss and is, therefore, considered to be useful in hearing aid evaluations. The CCT consists of two 100-word lists. This test does not correlate highly with “phonetically balanced” word recognition tests such as the W-22 or NU-6, nor does it correlate with degree of hearing loss. Therefore, the CCT cannot be employed as a substitute for the more popular word recognition tests. Administration time is from 15-30 minutes.

The California Consonant Test© includes a) audio recording, and b) instructions and score forms as printable pdf files. The two-page instructions include information on development and interpretation. One-page patient instructions are also included.
