Who is this app for :
Members of the Bilingual Aphasia Test Community, who have an Android Touch Tablet or
Android Smart Phone and who have used the BAT before.
What is the app :
AndroidBAT is a virtual paper stimulus book. It is a free OpenSource application which is simply
a ‘virtual paper’ version of the original BAT Stimuli PFDs, with ‘eyes’, ‘ears’ and ‘skin’.
The BAT was created by the Bilingual Aphasia Community of Researchers.
To run test, you need original eBAT Test PDFs, and a person who speaks the language you are
testing. The original Test PDFs, along with the instructions on how to administer the BAT are
presently available on 2 sites :
• McGill University – Linguistic Department – BAT
• École d’orthophonie et d’audiologie – Agora des professionnels de la santé - BAT
Why would you want to use the AndroidBAT instead of a PDF? The AndroidBAT has the added
benefit of allowing for a diversity of data collection integrated directly into the test. AndroidBAT
allows recording of eye-gaze and audio during a patient's interview, without visible external
camera or microphone, while providing more analyzable data (e.g., eye-gaze, audio, touch, etc.)
than the PDF format. Data can then be easily synced or shared with colleagues using Dropbox
AndroidBAT works on both tablets and phones. It has been tested on:
• Motorola XOOM 10inch Tablet
• Nexus 7 7inch Tablet
• HTC Desire 4inch Phone
• Nexus S 4inch Phone
