Listening Skills Assessment: Manual and Script. 1980 New Hampshire Educational Assessment Program.
Devine, Thomas G.; And Others
Designed to assess listening ability and to indicate implications for listening instruction, this instrument comes in a full and an abbreviated form. The 45 multiple choice items on the full form measure 53 specific listening skills in five categories: (1) simple recall, (2) recognizing and following spoken directions, (3) recognizing a speaker's purpose and plan, (4) critical listening, and (5) higher level listening skills. The items are developed around real life listening situations, such as conversations overheard on the street or in the supermarket, talk at meetings, a radio weather forecast, and spoken directions given by a service station manager. Validity, reliability, and normative data are included. (This document is one of those reviewed in The Research Instruments Project (TRIP) monograph "Measures for Research and Evaluation in the English Language Arts, Volume 2," published by the Committee on Research of the National Council of Teachers of English in cooperation with the ERIC Clearinghouse on Reading and Communication Skills. The TRIP review, included here as an introduction to the instrument, describes the instrument's category (language), title, author, date, age range (grade 6 for the abbreviated form, grade 11 for the full form), purpose, and physical characteristics.)
