Why does the supervising adult need to have good hearing?

January 1, 0001

  • An adult is required to do a short ‘calibration’ exercise at the beginning of the game which is then repeated by the child.  If the adult’s calibration is too low, or significantly worse than the child’s the final test result could be impacted.  In this case the adult will be prompted to re-do the exercise or find another adult with known good hearing to complete the exercise. If the adult repeatedly gets a worse result than the child they may wish to get a hearing check.
