The NU-6 Ordered by Difficulty Version II Short Interval allows the audiologist to reduce the time of testing in cases where the patient has essentially normal word recognition ability. It is the result of recent research on our original recording by Raymond Hurley and Janet Sells. The lists are ordered from the most difficult to the easiest. With normal listeners the test can often be terminated after the first 10 words. This is not a half list; however, there is a provision for termination of the test after 25 words in addition to after the first 10 words.
This short-interval version of the test gives the patient 2.5 seconds to respond instead of the standard four seconds. It is yet another way to effectively speed up administration time, but this version is not recommended for young children or the elderly. The administration time will vary from 2-16 minutes depending on how well the patient performs.
The NU-6 Ordered by Difficulty Version II Short Interval version includes a) audio recording, and b) instructions and list. The one-page instructions include method, scoring, and interpretation. Normative data is included, but it is not age specific. Available from Auditec, Inc. Call 1-800-669-9065 (from US) or 314-416-1050 (outside the US) to order. FREE shipping to contiguous US.
