The Relationships Between Listening and Writing Abilities of Selected Sixth Grade Children.
Mathews, Marilyn
It was the purpose of this study to determine the relationship between listening ability and writing ability of three groups of sixth graders: (1) 16 white and 5 Negro children who had attended an integrated school and who had been exposed to experimental materials in written composition in the fifth grade; (2) 78 white children who had attended an all-white school and who had served as the control group for the experimental study; and (3) 25 white and 8 Negro children who had attended an integrated school but who had not been exposed to experimental materials. The children's listening ability was determined by the results of the STEP Listening Comprehension Test, Form 4B. Writing ability was determined by taking the higher of the average rating earned on the STEP Essay Tests, Form 4A and 4B. The Pearson product-moment correlation technique was employed to determine the relationship between listening ability and writing ability. Tests for the significance of the difference between these correlations were made and the null hypothesis of no difference could not be rejected. An analysis of covariance, with I.Q. as a covariant, indicated that there were no significant differences in the listening abilities of the three groups of subjects. (Author/MF)
