Comparisons of Listening Abilities, Categorized as Good and Poor, of Inner-City Children in the Sixth Grade.
Butler, Joseph
This study was designed to compare the listening abilities of inner-city children in the sixth grade. The following variables were examined: reading, intelligence, school achievement, and sex. The STEP, Listening Test was administered to 124 sixth graders. The data for analysis consisted of raw scores from the standardized tests and numerical values assigned to the questionnaires designed for this study. Significant differences were found between good and poor listeners on tests of word meaning, paragraph meaning, intelligence, and listening habits. The differences were significant at the .05 level of confidence. There were no significant differences in the listening abilities of boys and girls. The STEP, Listening Test seems to have merit as an instrument o assess listening ability of inner-city children. The ability to listen well has definite and positive implications for scholastic achievement. Good listeners tend to be higher in intelligence than poor listeners, and the former practice better listening habits than the latter. (Author/CK)
