Abstract

Computer simulation was used to evaluate several parameters of an automated hearing test algorithm in an attempt to optimize the algorithm for accuracy and efficiency. An infant response model was developed to guide the simulations. Test parameters of interest were starting intensity and stopping rule and their interaction with a measure that is thought to emulate infant reliability, probability of task orientation. Results indicated that stopping rule, within the ranges investigated, had little effect on accuracy but had major impact on efficiency. Starting intensity interacted with the hearing status of pseudosubjects in influencing accuracy. Accuracy was most influenced by probability of task orientation. The simulated test data are compared to data from infants and young children in the accompanying article so that the response model can be evaluated.
