This study determined normative data for the Adult Auditory Performance Scale (AAPS), a 36-item questionnaire that assesses self-perceived listening abilities across multiple domains. Results revealed minimal listening difficulties across domains, with greatest difficulty reported for noisy environments. Significant increases in AAPS scores (i.e., greater difficulty) were observed for a comparison group of adults with self-perceived hearing difficulties. Results suggest that the AAPS is a useful tool for evaluating self-perceived auditory performance in adults.
