A Comparison Between the Indian and Non-Indian Children in Southern Saskatchewan Based on Listening Comprehension, Reading Comprehension, Auditory Discrimination and I.Q.
Graham, Dorothy Marguerite
The purpose of this study was to compare the performance of the Indian children in grades two and three of an integrated school in southern Saskatchewan with the performance of their non-Indian classmates on tests of listening comprehension, reading comprehension, auditory discrimination, and IQ. The Durrell Listening-Reading Series provided measures of listening comprehension, reading comprehension, and the potential and actual reading grade levels. The Wepman Auditory Discrimination Test was used to determine the auditory discrimination factor, and the results of the Kuhlmann-Anderson Test supplied the necessary IQ ratings. Results indicated that there was no significant difference between the groups on a measure of auditory discrimination. Other results generally supported the idea that Indian children in the primary grades of an integrated school in southern Saskatchewan were handicapped in their academic progress by insufficient development of their listening and reading skills, and by their less advanced intellectual growth.
