A Diagnostic-Remediation Teaching System for Enhancing Elementary Students' Science Listening Comprehension
Lin, Sheau-Wen; Liu, Yu
International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, v15 n8 p1485-1500 Dec 2017
The purpose of this study was to explore elementary students' listening comprehension changes using a Web-based teaching system that can diagnose and remediate students' science listening comprehension problems during scientific inquiry. The 3-component system consisted of a 9-item science listening comprehension test, a 37-item diagnostic test, and 107 scaffoldings of listening strategies. The diagnostic and remediation system was trialed with grade 6 students (N = 526) from southern Taiwan who were selected by cluster sampling. The participants were asked to take the 3 components individually on a computer. The students' responses were collected and analyzed to document performance and changes. Results indicated that the diagnostic test had a positive influence on science listening comprehension proficiency and addressed potential problems, while the scaffolding helped remediate confirmed listening difficulties. Instructional implications for classroom diagnosis-remediation applications are discussed and future research is outlined.
