Summary

The Communication Competency Assessment Instrument (CCAI) was developed as a college-level communication competence measure. However, because the listening portion of the CCAI requires individual testing and is not practical for large-scale testing situations, an additional multiple choice measure was developed. In a study conducted at Kent State University, 339 students in introductory speech communication classes completed three listening measures: the Kentucky Comprehensive Listening Test, the Watson-Barker Listening Test, and the open-ended (OE) and multiple choice forms of the CCAI. Analysis of the students' scores indicated that there are many similarities between the Kentucky and the Watson-Barker tests, but that the strongest relationship among the listening tests exists between the Watson-Barker Listening Test and the CCAI-OE. Comparison of these three tests has shown that listening to an audiotape may differ from receiving the stimulus through videotape or in actual performance and that the questions must be worded accurately. Several additional concerns have been discovered and should be addressed in listening test construction and development. (DF)
