Comprehension of a Narrative Passage by Primary School Children as a Function of Listening Rate and Reading Comprehension Level.
Mullally, Lee J.
The comprehension of a narrative passage by primary grade children as a function of both listening rate and the reading comprehension level was examined by this study. Ninety-six children divided into three groups according to reading level were used. The listening rate was controlled by means of a word compression ranging from zero (138 words per minute) to 60 percent (345 words per minute). Comprehension was measured by means of a standard test. The experiment revealed that listening comprehension declines as speech is compressed and that Grade 3 reading achievement level children scored higher in comprehension than did Grade 2 children. In addition, Grade 2 level children were higher than Grade 1 level in listening comprehension. In addition, no significant interaction between the three levels of reading achievement and the four levels of word compression rate was found. (MC)
