Cloze Listening Test (Form Lisbon and Form Waco).
Bowdidge, John S.
Designed to measure recall of specific information, ability to grasp the thought of a passage as a whole, and ability to apply various contextual clues while listening to a passage of aural communication, each of the alternate forms of the cloze listening test consists of an audio tape recording of approximately twenty minutes duration and a four-page response form containing numbered lines on which responses are to be written. 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" to be 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. A TRIP review which precedes the document lists its category (Listening), title, author, date, and age range (secondary), and desceibes the instrument's purpose and physical characteristics.] (RB)
