PERT (PERFORMANCE REPORT TOOL)
PeRT (Performance Report Tool) is an automated evaluation program designed for use by speech and language therapists to assess the speech performance of individuals who use alternative and augmentative communication (AAC) devices. This software facilitates the generation of an AAC Performance Report from AAC language samples automatically collected using the Language Activity Monitor (LAM) data format. The AAC Performance Report includes seventeen quantitative summary measures of communication performance. Appendices include LAM data, utterances, word lists, and a text version of the report. This allows the monitoring of performance over time for setting therapy goals and objectives and measuring outcomes. The AAC Performance Report supports AAC evidence-based practice. COMPATIBILITY: For use on IBM and compatible or Macintosh computers. The software was written in Java to allow operation on both PC and Macintosh platforms.
Notes: A 60-day demostration version is available on CD or through download from the AAC Institute web site. A password can be purchased to extend its function beyond that time. ** A free self-study course is available on the research supporting performance measurement and the AAC Performance Report. The course includes a module on using PeRT.
