We encourage you to apply your new listening skills in real-world situations!
Each day at the end of your training session you will see two training
scores, your score for today's session and your total score from the
beginning of training.
Your daily score is a combined score for all tasks that you complete that day. Larger scores generally indicate better performance. Many people training with LACE get between 60 and 120 points per day.
Remember the difficulty of the content and your interest and energy level changes daily and this can affect your score.
While it is good to visualize your progress, the best way to see how LACE training is helping you, is to apply your new listening skills in real-world situations.
If you completed the Quick Speech-in-noise (QuickSIN™) test, you will see your score HERE. The QuickSIN™ is a speech-in-noise test that quickly and easily measures your ability to hear in noise. This is a test that is standardized and used frequently by Hearing Health Care Professionals and Researchers alike. The score identifies the degree of speech in noise loss (SNR loss). The scale of scores and the associated degree of function is displayed BELOW. You may also share this information with your Hearing Health Care Professional, if applicable, for more information. QuickSIN™ is a program by Etymotic Research, Inc.
This assessment identifies problems your hearing loss may be causing you. A higher score on this scale means that you perceive more problems associated with your hearing loss.
|Score range||Potential affects|
|0-16||Little to no impairment|
|17-42||Mild to moderate impairment|
This assessment determines how confident you are of your ability to effectively communicate in different situations. A higher score on this scale means that you feel more confident.
