The Pupil Rating Scale (Revised) as a Predictor of Referral for Central Auditory Disorders.
Obringer, S. John
A study was conducted to determine which factors on the Pupil Rating Scale (Revised) developed by H. Myklebust (1965) were identified by classroom teachers as being deficient in referring students for central auditory testing. The Pupil Rating Scale is a behavioral checklist for classroom teachers to use to rate students in five broad categories of verbal and nonverbal abilities. Pupil Rating Scale results for 20 students referred to a hearing clinic by local Arizona public schools were compared with those from a sample of 1,264 without central auditory disorders. It was found that teachers had rated the referred students as significantly lower on comprehension, personal-social behavior, and certain spoken language skills. Both the total verbal and total scale scores were significantly lower than for Myklebust's normal sample. Results suggest that the Pupil Rating Scale (Revised) is an adequate instrument for clinical referral, and that the subtests of auditory comprehension and the personal-social behavior are quite adequate predictors of students in need of central auditory testing.
