AUDITORY CONTINUOUS PERFORMANCE TEST (ACPT)

a test that measures a person's ability to attend to auditory stimuli for an extended period. One such test comprises six trial lists of one-syllable words. The words are presented rapidly, and the person is instructed to say each time a target word occurs. The number of incorrect responses for the entire test provides a measure of overall attention ability. (developed in 1994 by audiologist Robert W. Keith]
