The SIN test was released about 1 or 2 years ago by Mead Killion.  Speech 
shaped noise is presented at various S/N and the subject listens to and 
tries to identify as many words in the sentence as possible.  Scoring is 
based on correct identification of key words in the sentence.  I have 
seen it in CD form and the S/N are already mixed, so all that needs be 
tone is set the VU for the calibration tone.  Speech is presented at 40 
and 70 dB SPL(?).  Normative curves are provided to show patients...

I have not seen any references pertaining to its development or any 
validation studies...
