Reading Versus Listening: Modes of Presentation of a First-Grade Reading Test.
Haugh, Eleanor K.
The relationship between first graders' listening comprehension and reading comprehension was examined in a study involving 64 children. Two forms of the Gates-MacGinitie Reading Test, Primary A, were administered--one orally and one silently. No significant difference was found between the mean score of the silent test and that of the oral test. In fact, a significant correlation of .317 between reading and listening comprehension was obtained. (Author/FL)
