The Reliability and Interrelationships of Three Forms of the Michigan Test of Aural Comprehension.
Baldauf, Richard B., Jr.; Bisazza, John A.
One hundred eighty limited-English-speaking college students from the Philippines, Hong Kong, India, Japan, Thailand, and Taiwan were administered the Michigan Test of Aural Comprehension (MTAC). An analysis of the MTAC indicated that the three unrestricted forms of the test show satisfactory internal consistency reliability comparable to that found for other listening comprehension tests. However, the results strongly suggest that counselors should not treat the three forms as being statistically equivalent. Furthermore, there is strong evidence that speaker variation, contrary to the test manuals' assertions, can effect test results. (Author/BW)
