Summary

The purpose of this study was to test the hypothesis that increasing the rate of cognitive structuring of aurally input data through the use of compressed speech would improve scores on listening tests which measure ability in listening subskills. The hypothesis predicted that subjects trained in listening for details would improve in this subskill but would also improve in other subskills, such as following directions, recognizing transitions, etc. The Brown-Carlsen, Rossiter, and Xeros tests were used as pretests and posttests. Subjects listened to taped texts compressed to 275 words per minute and were tested on immediate memory for details. Experimental subjects improved significantly more than the control group, but mostly on those parts of the tests which were similar to their training--Part E of the Brown-Carlsen (listening to lecture) and Part 1 of the Rossiter (listening for details). There was little evidence that increasing the rate of handling aurally input data affected subskills other than those used in the training sessions. (Author/DI)
