For data collection, the writing assignment designed with good Content Validity Index (CVI) was used. The collected data were analyzed using independent t-test and nonparametric Mann-Whitney U test.
Results: The results showed that there is a significant difference between mean percent of errors of verbs in two groups with severe hearing impairments(p<0.05).Mean percent of different types of errors included omission, errors of tense, substitution, and errors of agreement of verb and subject in present, past and future tenses (p<0.05).
