Fifteen listeners with sensorineural hearing loss and 15 normal listeners were administered the Fairbanks Rhyme Test and CID Auditory Test W-22 at −4, 0, 8, 16, 24, 32, and 40 dB sensation levels. The articulation functions for the two tests were similar for the two groups of listeners. The two tests appear equal in ability to differentiate normal listeners from listeners with sensorineural loss. It is suggested that certain nonessential advantages of the Rhyme Test may make it preferable to CID Auditory Test W-22 since both tests appear to be equivalent indicators of speech-sound discrimination.
