ADMINISTERING A LISTENING COMPREHENSION TEST THROUGH USE OF TEACHER-READERS, SOUND FILM, AND TAPE RECORDINGS.
STODOLA, QUENTIN; AND OTHERS
AN EXPERIMENT WAS CONDUCTED IN A TYPICAL SCHOOL SITUATION TO DETERMINE IF VARIATIONS AMONG TEACHER PRESENTATIONS OF LISTENING TESTS (READING ABILITIES) HAVE DIFFERENT EFFECTS ON THE RESULTS OF THESE TESTS. LISTENING TESTS WERE ADMINISTERED TO PUPILS OF THE PUBLIC SCHOOLS IN FARGO, NORTH DAKOTA, AT THE HIGH SCHOOL, JUNIOR HIGH SCHOOL, AND ELEMENTARY SCHOOL LEVELS. AT EACH GRADE LEVEL, A LISTENING COMPREHENSION TEST WAS GIVEN BY FOUR DIFFERENT METHODS TO GROUPS OF FIVE CLASS UNITS TO WHICH PUPILS AND TEACHERS HAD BEEN RANDOMLY ASSIGNED. THE METHODS WERE--(1) THE REGULAR CLASSROOM TEACHER READ THE TEST FOLLOWING THE TEST PUBLISHER'S DIRECTIONS, (2) THE CLASSROOM TEACHER READ THE TEST AFTER RECEIVING SPECIAL TRAINING FOR 2 HOURS, (3) THE CLASSROOM TEACHER GAVE THE TEST USING A PREPARED PROFESSIONAL MOTION PICTURE WITH SOUND, AND (4) THE CLASSROOM TEACHER ADMINISTERED THE TEST USING A PREPARED RECORDING, DUPLICATING THE AUDIO PORTION OF THE MOVIE. MEAN SCORES WERE DETERMINED FOR EACH CLASS UNIT AND SUBJECTED TO ANALYSIS OF VARIANCE. FOR ALL LEVELS AND UNITS, THERE WAS LITTLE EVIDENCE OF PRESENTATION DIFFERENCES CAUSING UNDUE VARIATION IN TEST SCORES. RELATIVE TO METHODS, ONLY AT THE HIGH SCHOOL LEVEL WAS THERE A MAJOR DIFFERENCE IN SCORES. HERE THE MOVIE GROUP SCORED SIGNIFICANTLY HIGHER THAN OTHER GROUPS, INDICATING GREATER PUPIL COMPREHENSION.
