The Development of Listening Tests.
Faires, Charles L.
One of the major factors for the lack of quality listening research is a lack of knowledge about the process itself. The second major factor is the lack of a reliable and valid listening test. From a review of 107 articles on listening, 38 reports of listening research, and from studies of seven examiner-developed and three commercially-developed listening tests, a chart was developed to report correlations between each of the listening tests and the intelligence measures and reading assessments used in the validation process or in the research study. The listening tests reviewed include: the Wallner Test of Listening Comprehension, the Tipton and Weaver listening test, the Orr-Graham Listening Test, Sprache's Auditory Comprehension Test, the Brown diagnostic test of listening comprehension, Biggs' diagnostic test of listening effectiveness, Blewett's listening test, Heilman's listening test, the Brown-Carlsen Listening Comprehension Test, the Sequential Tests of Educational Progress (STEP) - Listening, and the Jones-Mohr Listening Test.
