ConceptAudiology speech test result
DescriptionRecord of results from an audiology speech test conducted for the purpose of assessing speech discrimination and speech recognition, and their clinical interpretation.
UseUse to record the results of audiology speech tests carried out to assess speech discrimination and speech recognition. Use to record the clinical interpretation of audiology speech tests carried out to assess speech discrimination and speech recognition.
MisuseNot to be used for audiology speech testing that is used for phonemic confusions analysis. Not to be used to assess speech production. Not to be used to record audiology speech tests where the presentaton level is not known - for example: unmonitored live voice.
PurposeTo record results from an audiology speech test conducted for the purpose of assessing speech discrimination and speech recognition, and their clinical interpretation.
