Frequency (pitch) and duration pattern tests

J Am Acad Audiol. 1994 Jul;5(4):265-8.


Compact disc versions of the frequency (pitch) and duration pattern tests are reported. Results are similar to previous reports on these tests using taped materials. Mean performance of normal-hearing young adults for both pattern perception tests was approximately 90 percent. There was no effect of the two presentation levels used in this study. The compact disc version of these tests provides a high-fidelity measure of auditory pattern identification that can be administered easily.
