The Modified Rhyme Test is considered a word recognition or speech discrimination test. It consists of a series of four fifty word lists in quiet and in noise. The first and last fifty words are “in quiet” though there is a subdued white noise about 30 dB below the stimulus words. The second and third series of fifty words are in noise, the S/N selected to provide a predicted percent correct for normal listeners, labeled “P83 and P76” respectively. It is a multiple choice-pencil paper test. Each list begins with instructions and several practice items.
