Objective: A battery of tests for central auditory processing assessment has been designed in French. This battery, BAC for Bilan Auditif Central (central auditory processing), consists of four types of tests: a speech-in-noise test, a dichotic test, a temporal processing test and a binaural interaction test. Material and method: Descriptive statistics were computed on data obtained from 668 subjects ranging from 5 to 85 years old. Results: Tests scores of the speech-in-noise test, the dichotic test and the binaural interaction test showed a normal distribution. Test scores of the temporal processing demonstrates a ceiling effect. Effects of maturation and involution were clearly visible for all tests. Conclusion: The low correlation between scores obtained from the four tests pointed to the need for a battery of several tests to assess central auditory processing.
