Auditec’s test recordings vary from fully developed tests with a manual that includes age-specific normative data to simple test recordings without any normative data. Some audiologists have developed their own normative data for those test recordings. If that’s you, please consider sharing that information with us so that we can pass it onto other audiologists. Audiologists have voiced a real need for data on the following Auditec recordings:
- French Word Lists opposite Noise
- Modified Rhyme Test
- NU-6 opposite Noise
- NU-6 Time Compressed
- NUCHIPS opposite Noise
- PBK opposite Noise
- Spanish Word Lists opposite Noise
- Spanish Sentences opposite Noise
- W-22 opposite Noise
- W-22 Time Compressed
- WIPI Low Pass Filtered
- WIPI Time Compressed
Auditec is only interested in normative data that has been personally gathered by you or your organization. Please include the following information (if possible):
- number of normal subjects (No test size is too small.)
- ages of normal subjects
- regional background
- other applicable information
- your name or your organization’s name (so we can credit you)
We hope to gather this information from multiple sources to give audiologists a guideline to use for normative data. Please email this information to email@example.com. By working together, audiologists can improve diagnosis, treatment, and management for their patients. Thank you for your dedication to this field.
The Time Compressed Sentence Test (TCST) is for identifying and quantifying disorders of auditory processing in children specifically the child’s ability to understand acoustically distorted or rapid rates of speech. In addition, results of testing with the TCST may yield insights into children with slow reaction times and speed of mental processing. It is considered a monaural low redundancy speech test (monaural separation closure -MSC) sensitive to brainstem and cortical lesions. The developer states the TCST can be administered and scored in less than 15 minutes.
The Time Compressed Sentence Test includes a) audio recording, and b) manual and score forms as printable pdf files. The extensive manual includes administration, scoring, and interpretation information. Age-specific normative data for ages 6, 7, 8, 9, and 10-11 is included. The developer recommends using the normative data for the 10-11 age category as a guideline for testing patients older than 11. Available from Auditec, Inc.
