The Minimal Auditory Capabilities (MAC)© battery is specifically targeted to the cochlear implant patient. It consists of a series of tasks which are graded in difficulty. This is a standardized test. Most of the MAC battery sub-tests assume that a patient’s hearing loss has occurred post-lingual, but it can be employed as a means of evaluating the hearing abilities of persons for whom traditional speech materials are too difficult.
The MAC Battery consists of the following subtests: 1) Question/ Statement, 2) Vowels, 3) Spondee Recognition, 4) Noise/ Voice, 5) Accent, 6) CID Everyday Sentences, 7) Initial Consonants, 8) Spondee Same/ Different, 9) SPIN High-Context Sentences, 10) Familiar Sounds, 11) Monosyllabic Words (NU-6, List 1B), 12) Four-Choice Spondee, 13) Final Consonants
The Minimal Auditory Capabilities (MAC)© battery includes: a) audio recording, and b) manual and score forms as printable pdf files. This thirteen-page manual contains development, administration, and interpretation information. Normative data is included for adults. It can be assumed children over the age of 11 would score as well (or nearly as well) as adults. Available from Auditec, Inc.
