Abstract

No standardized aphasia batteries are available in the Russian language. To address this shortage a Russian version of the Multiple-Choice Test of Auditory Comprehension (MCTAC) (Hallowell, 2008a) was developed and administered to 103 participants without brain injury and 75 participants with aphasia. All were native speakers of Russian. The MCTAC’s brevity of administration, ease of scoring, culture-free stimuli, sensitivity, specificity, inter-rater and test-retest reliability, internal consistency, validity, and lack of bias according to age and education support the clinical strength of this test for determining the severity of auditory linguistic comprehension deficits in Russian-speaking adults with aphasia.
