This study aims to review papers and standards for Kerean speech audiometry (KSA) and provide clinically useful information. Korean and international standards as well as research papers related to the KSA were reviewed in terms of the assessment of hearing function in connection with diagnostic evaluation and audiological rehabilitation. The Korean standard (KS I ISO 8253-3) for speech audiometry was developed based on the international standard of ISO 8253-3, which includes procedures to measure speech recognition threshold (SRT), word recognition score (WRS) and sentence recognition score (SRS). Each procedure has separate speech lists for three age groups; 3-5 years old, 6-12 years old and 13 years and older. Recently several studies have reported the test-retest reliability of each speech list for each procedure for each age group to use conveniently in various clinical areas. More specifically they presented tables of 95% confidence intervals and prediction intervals for each WRS and SRS from 0 to 100% for each age group. The above results would provide reasonable evidence for determining whether retest scores for some groups or individuals would be significantly different from test scores. In order to demonstrate clinically meaningful differences in speech audiometry, test scores close to the center (50%) tend to have retest scores with bigger differences than those close to 0 or 100%.
Key Words: Speech audiometry, Korean standard, Test-retest reliability, Confidence interval, Prediction interval.
