Re: auditory environmental ID test
There is such a test, the Familiar Sounds Recognition Test, part of the
Test of Basic Auditory Abilities, developed at Indiana University by
Chuck Watson, Gary Kidd and myself. It tests the identification of 25
common environmental sounds at six different S/N in a 3AFC format. It
has been run on over 300 people so norms are available and it has been
shown to have good reliability. Contact Chuck at watson@xxxxxxxxxxx or
Gary at kidd@xxxxxxxxxxx for a copy of the materials. The results have
been written up and submitted for review.

A colleague of mine is looking for a multiple-choice auditory
environmental identification/recognition test. Does anyone know if
such a test already exists? The idea would be quite simple: subjects
hear a target sound, and have to choose from a list of, say 4 items,
what might have made the sound. I suspect many people may have created
versions of something like this, but I don't know if anyone has
published a formal version of it, with norms, etc.
If anyone knows of anything like that, please let me know.
