The W-22 Ordered by Difficulty is a word recognition or speech discrimination test. It consists of four lists of 25 words each selected by D. Rose so that they are ordered from most likely to be missed to the least likely. If the first 10 items (or 9 of the 10) are heard correctly, the test is halted, since it is assumed that an individual with word recognition difficulty will be most likely to miss the most difficult items. Persons who miss more than one of the first ten items are given the entire 25-word list.
The W-22 Ordered by Difficulty includes a) audio recording, and b) word list. This product does not include instructions or normative data. It is assumed that purchasers of Auditec’s products are well trained in their use, purpose, and interpretation.Available from Auditec, Inc.

*What is the short interval version and is it right for your patients? The standard amount of time given for the patient to respond is approximately four seconds. Short-interval versions only give the patient 2.5 seconds for the patient to respond. It is an effective way to speed up administration time, but this version is not recommended for young children or the elderly.
