A Study To Determine the Effectiveness of a Listening Skills Program on Language Structured Auditory Retention.
McAllister, Elizabeth Jo
A study determined the effectiveness of a listening skills program on language-structured auditory retention. The Language-Structured Auditory Retention Span Test (LARS) was used as the testing instrument, and the SRA Listening Skills Program was used as the structured listening program. Subjects, 20 second-grade students from Wilsonburg Grade School in Harrison County, West Virginia, were given a pretest using the LARS A test. Twenty-four SRA Listening Skills Lessons were presented to the entire class on 24 days with each student being present for at least 15 of the lessons. The LARS B was given as a posttest. The statistical analysis applied to the data was the t-test for related measures. Results indicated a statistically significant difference between pretest and posttest means, and that scores for 17 of the 20 students improved after being presented with the listening skills program. Findings suggest that a structured listening program can increase the listening ability of students. (Six tables of data are included; 21 references, LARS A and B tests and scoring information,and all 24 lessons of the SRA Listening Skills Program are attached.) (Author/RS)
