A Study of the Relationship between Values and Listening Comprehension.
Paulin, Kenneth Clarence
This study was designed to examine the relationship between values and listening comprehension. Subjects were 146 freshman and sophomore basic speech students at Eastern Michigan University during the 1971 summer session. The listening sub-test of the Sequential Tests of Educational Progress (STEP) and the Allport, Vernon, and Lindzey Study of Values were administered to all of the subjects. No significant differences in listening comprehension of groups of subjects with different values were discovered. The results also indicated that the scores on the sub-tests of the Study of Values are not a good predictor of listening comprehension behavior as measured with the STEP Test. Finally, the fifteen subjects with the highest and lowest score in the economic and religious value categories were testedto determine if those who had listened to a message which was congruent with their salient value category would have a significantly higher mean score on a listening comprehension test over this message than the three other groups. No such significantly higher score was found. (Author/MKM)
