Characteristics of Deaf Participants Who Performed Above Chance on the Rhyme Task and Their Hearing Control Group: Mean (SD) [Range] of Age, NVIQ (Shortened Version of Advanced Progressive Matrices [APM]), Reading Level (Gates–McGinitie Reading Test), and Education Level


Age (Months)
NVIQ (APM) (Max = 12)
Reading Raw Score (Max = 93)*
Education Level (Max = 7)
Deaf (n = 9) 403 (127) [255–677] 6.4 (3.1) [3–12] 81.1 (9.4) [63–93] 5.7 (3.1) [4–7] 
Hearing (n = 9) 349 (105) [231–549] 6.7 (3.4) [3–10] 90.1 (1.8) [87–92] 5.6 (0.73) [5–7] 

Age (Months)
NVIQ (APM) (Max = 12)
Reading Raw Score (Max = 93)*
Education Level (Max = 7)
Deaf (n = 9) 403 (127) [255–677] 6.4 (3.1) [3–12] 81.1 (9.4) [63–93] 5.7 (3.1) [4–7] 
Hearing (n = 9) 349 (105) [231–549] 6.7 (3.4) [3–10] 90.1 (1.8) [87–92] 5.6 (0.73) [5–7] 

Deaf and hearing participants did not differ on sex (3 men each group), age, NVIQ, or education level (ps > .1). However, hearing participants were better readers than deaf participants (p < .02).*
