Linguistic Presentation of Curriculum and CAI to Hearing Impaired Students.
Rudner, Lawrence M.
Examined in two studies with a total of 4,673 hearing impaired and 618 hearing students were the implications of language differences on the linguistic presentation of instruction and computer assisted instruction to the hearing impaired. In the first study, item responses on the Stanford Achievement Test Hearing Impaired Version (SAT-HI) were factor analyzed in an initial effort to identify potentially aberrant linguistic structures. In the second study, item p-values on the SAT-HI were analyzed for item bias. Identified as misleading for hearing impaired students were the following six linguistic structures: conditions (if, when), comparatives (greater than, the most), negation, inferentials (should, could, since), low information pronouns (it, something), and lenghty passages.
