MULTIPLE AUDITORY PROCESSING ASSESSMENT VERSION 2 (MAPA 2)

The MAPA-2 is a comprehensive assessment of auditory processing and listening skills. It may be used as a screener to be followed by other behavirol or physiological tests or it may be used for a preliminary diagnosis in the auditory area. The test is administered via CD and can be used in a clinical setting or a sound booth. Administration time is 30-40 minutes.

The MAPA-2 includes eight different subtests in the three domains (monaural, temporal, and binaural) that ASHA and AAA recommend for auditory processing assessment along with the Scale of Auditory Behaviors, a 12-item parent or teacher completed questionnaire of listening behaviors.

Monaural: Evaluate an individual’s ability to use low redundancy information.

  1. Monaural-Selective Attention Test (MSAAT): Assesses an individual’s ability to recognize monosyllabic words with and without competing background noise of high-interest speech
  2. Speech in Noise for Children (SINCA): Assesses an individual’s ability to recognize monosyllabic word pairs presented with competing pink noise at progressively decreasing signal-to-noise ratios

    Temporal: Evaluate an individual’s ability to use acoustic information over time.

  3. Tap Test: Assesses an individual’s ability to recognize and label an auditory pattern
  4. Pitch Pattern Test: Assesses an individual’s ability to use cues including rate and pattern and to label what is heard

    Binaural: Evaluate an individual’s ability to use unique information presented simultaneously to each ear.

  5. Dichotic Digits: Assesses an individual’s ability to recognize digit sequences when digit pairs are presented simultaneously to each ear
  6. Competing Sentences: Assesses an individual’s ability to recognize more complex language sequences presented simultaneously to each ear

    Supplemental Subtests: Additional tests that can be used to assess an individual’s skill in the temporal area.

  7. Duration Pattern Test: Assesses an individual’s ability to use cues including rate and pattern and to label what is heard
  8. Gap Detection Test: Assesses an individual’s temporal resolution abilities using intervals of varying length between stimuli
