Basic assumptions and inferences underlying hearing aid evaluation procedures are discussed. A model of hearing aid e valuation incorporating these assumptions and inferences is presented. Problems associated with obtaining valid electroacoustical measurements of hearing aids as well as valid psychoacoustic measurements, aided and unaided, are discussed. Implications for the future study of aided listening are included.
