Corpus Description

The Quick Aphasia Battery (QAB; Wilson et al., 2018) was administered to 16 individuals with chronic post-stroke aphasia, 3 times each, and scored independently by 2 raters to establish test-retest and inter-rater reliability. The Western Aphasia Battery (WAB) was also administered to these patients to assess concurrent validity of the QAB. For more information about the QAB, please see our website.

We thank the participants for agreeing to share audiovisual recordings of their language evaluations with the aphasia research community. The QAB was administered by Dana Eriksson, Stefanie Lauderdale, and Melodie Yen, and scored by Sarah Schneck and Jillian Lucanie. The connected speech samples were transcribed by Sarah Schneck. The videos were edited by Sweta Ghati.
