Measuring Listening Comprehension in Adolescents with Intellectual Disability.
Fletcher, Janet; Clayton, Ian
Australia and New Zealand Journal of Developmental Disabilities, v19 n1 p53-59 1994
Of three methods (free recall, verbally prompted recall, and visually prompted recall) for eliciting understanding of a folk tale by 35 adolescents with intellectual disability, none proved significantly better in eliciting story understanding. All measures correlated with short-term memory, suggesting that subjects' difficulty encoding stories efficiently may render ineffective experimental manipulations designed to facilitate retrieval.
