Monosyllable, Trochee, Spondee (MTS) Test Scores and Communication Self-Evaluation Scores in Spoken Language Environments of Deaf Adult Hearing Aid Users
The purpose of this study is to identify connections between the Monosyllable, Trochee, Spondee (MTS) test scores and participants’ real-life experiences with spoken English. This study will aim to achieve this with a correlation analysis between the MTS test scores and the Communication Self-Assessment Scale Inventory for Deaf Adults-Abbreviated (CSDA) scores.
The MTS test is a closed-set task that has 3 columns, one with monosyllabic words, one with trochaic words, and one with spondaic words; the participant can have the word recognition correct or the category correct and receives credit for both, the category, or neither (Tyler, n.d.).
The MTS tests the patient’s ability to detect pattern perception and to recognize the word. These test results may help the clinician decide realistic expectations of amplification (Buxton et al, 2018).
