  2. Visual Reinforcement Infant Speech Perception (VRISD)
  3. Northwestern University- Children’s Perception of Speech (NU-CHIPS)
  4. Hearing in Noise Test for Children (HINT-C)
5.  What is the hearing profile associated with hidden hearing loss?
  1. Elevated hearing thresholds at high frequencies and hearing problems with fricative sounds
  2. Speech-in-noise intelligibility difficulties and normal audiometric results
  3. Normal bone conduction audiometric thresholds elevated air conduction audiometric thresholds
  4. Temporary threshold shifts followed by persistent tinnitus
6.  What are the most relevant factors that can develop hidden hearing loss?
  1. Smoking and falls
  2. Diabetes
  3. Noise exposure and aging
  4. Sedentarism and alcohol
7.  Which of the following is an example of a "nudge" that could be used to help a client follow through with an action?
  1. Saying that you will ask them about it sometime in the future
  2. Leaving it up to the client to decide how to do it
  3. Discussing and/or writing down specific implementation intentions with the client around the action
  4. Mentioning that it’s hard to do the action
8.  Based on Zimmerman’s theoretical framework (1995) of empowerment, underpinning the study, which of the following components are necessary in order for an individual to become empowered?
  1. Intrapersonal, Intersectional, and Behavioral
  2. Intergenerational, Intrapersonal, and Interactional
  3. Intrapersonal, Interactional, and Behavioral
  4. Interactional and Behavioral
9.  What is the first step in the design thinking process?
  1. Prototype and develop a solution
  2. Empathize with your users to understand their problems and motivations
  3. Brainstorm lots of ideas
  4. Define the most significant unmet need
10.  How does design thinking improve the way solutions are created?
  1. It involves designing the solution in the lab and not deviating from the plan
  2. It involves starting with an existing solution and making an incremental change
  3. It involves gathering regular feedback from users who try out your prototype so you can continuously improve it
  4. It involves spending a lot of time developing a fully-featured solution before testing it
