Three tests of auditory comprehension for aphasic adults were administered: (1) a category of the Functional Communication Profile (FCP), (2) a section of an Aphasia Test, and (3) the Token Test. The results are presented in terms of the relative degree of difficulty of the tests and the relationship between the scores of nontask-oriented and the task-oriented tests. Of the three, the Token Test was found to be the most difficult and the Aphasia Test the easiest. The FCP Understanding category had the widest range of difficulty. For the patients diagnosed as aphasic without additional, nonsymbolic expressive problems, there was a significant relationship between task-oriented and nontask-oriented test scores. An unexpected finding was that Understanding ratings on the FCP were affected by verbal apraxia or dysarthria.
