Auding Achievement of First Grade Pupils Related to Selected Pupil Characteristics.
Nesbitt, Mary Catherine
This study attempted (1) to identify the auding levels of achievement of first grade children, (2) to compare the auding achievement of children in the first grade who had 1 year of pre-primary instruction with children in the first grade as their first year of systematic schooling, and (3) to explore the extent of the relationships between the child's auding achievement and selected pupil characteristics. An auding instrument was constructed using four selections from the Laidlaw Brothers Science Series for elementary grades. Questions required answers about main ideas, details, organization, and inference. The selections were presented to each of 80 first-graders by the use of a tape recorder. Findings showed that 56% of the subjects could understand, through listening, a selection designed to be read at the second grade level; 49.7% could understand a selection at the third grade level; 36% at the fourth grade level; and 30% at the fifth grade level. When a two-tailed test of significance was used, no significant difference between the auding achievement of the two groups of children was found. No significant difference was found between sexes, although boys tended to obtain higher means on the auding instrument than did girls. Socioeconomic status did not contribute significantly to auding achievement. (Author/LK)
