NU-6 Ordered by Difficulty Version II

The NU-6 Ordered by Difficulty Version II allows the audiologist to reduce the time of testing in cases where the patient has essentially normal word recognition ability.  It is the result of recent research on our original recording by Raymond Hurley and Janet Sells.

The lists are ordered from the most difficult to the easiest.  With normal listeners the test can often be terminated after the first 10 words.  This is not a half list; however, there is a provision for termination of the test after 25 words in addition to after the first 10 words.

The NU-6 Ordered by Difficulty Version II includes a) audio recording, and b) instructions and list. The one-page instructions include method, scoring, and interpretation. Normative data is included, but it is not age specific. Available from Auditec, Inc Call 1-800-669-9065 (from US) or 314-416-1050 (outside the US) to order. FREE shipping to contiguous US.

*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.

What is the difference between the NU-6 Ordered by Difficulty Version I and the NU-6 Ordered by Difficulty Version II? The NU-6 Ordered by Difficulty Version I consists of 7 lists of 25 words each. The examiner can either terminate the test after the first 10 words or complete all 25 words in the list. This does not include instructions. The NU-6 Ordered by Difficulty Version II is based on later research. It consists of 4 lists of 50 words each. The examiner can either terminate the test after the first 10 or after 25 words or complete all 50 words in the list. It includes instructions.
