Web-Based Assessment Tool for Communication and Active Listening Skill Development
Cheon, Jongpil; Grant, Michael
TechTrends: Linking Research and Practice to Improve Learning, v53 n6 p24-34 Nov 2009
The website "Active Listening" was developed within a larger project--"Interactive Web-based training in the subtleties of communication and active listening skill development." The Active Listening site aims to provide beginning counseling psychology students with didactic and experimental learning activities and interactive tests so that students obtain fundamental active listening skills for effective and facilitative communication. A technical consultant and a site developer developed the site with streaming video and advanced web technologies so that students can effectively practice the subtleties of active listening in an authentic counseling situation. This paper presents the development process where advanced web technologies, including streaming video techniques, were implemented in the online assessment site, the formative evaluation results which directed how the site could be improved, and the implications for instructional designers. (Contains 6 figures and 2 tables.)
