Some Relationships Between Listening Comprehension and Rate of Presentation.
Kuperberg, Ann
This study was conducted to determine the relationship between listening comprehension and rate of presentation using meaningful prose materials. A total of 103 students from a suburban sixth-grade class in a central New Jersey school district participated in the study. To determine reading comprehension levels, the students were administered the comprehension subtest of the Gates-MacGinitie Reading Test, Survey D. It was concluded that as the rate of presentation increased, comprehension decreased among sixth-graders. Furthermore, above-average readers tend to comprehend listening material better than other readers. (Author/RB)
