Abstract

Using images in multiple-choice formats for comprehension testing is common. Validity
of responses may be confounded by: 1) physical stimulus features or 2) semantic content
conveyed by multiple-choice images. An instrument, based on the literature and validated
by experts, was developed to assess such influences within multiple-choice images.
Twenty-three adults rated 20 sets of images from five published aphasia batteries. Eye
movements were recorded for a separate group of 20 adults viewing the same sets. All
sets prompted disproportionate visual attention, suggesting a need for consideration of
these influences when using current tests and better control in designing test images.
