This chapter decribes the objective listening test administered to students with specific learning difficulties (dyslexia) and a control group. Test types used included true/false and MCQ with 3, 4 or 5 options. The test, set at B1 level of he CEFR (the required level for university entrance) involved listening to a monologue (extract from a radio programme) and an interview. An analysis of the results suggests that, whereas T/F items posed considerable difficulty to students with dyslexia, especially those items with greater information load, there seemed to be no difference in difficulty between 3 and 4 option MCQs. More problematic were those items requiring inferencing skills to retrieve information which was not explicit in the text.

Abstract

This chapter decribes the objective listening test administered to students with specific learning difficulties (dyslexia) and a control group. Test types used included true/false and MCQ with 3, 4 or 5 options. The test, set at B1 level of he CEFR (the required level for university entrance) involved listening to a monologue (extract from a radio programme) and an interview. An analysis of the results suggests that, whereas T/F items posed considerable difficulty to students with dyslexia, especially those items with greater information load, there seemed to be no difference in difficulty between 3 and 4 option MCQs. More problematic were those items requiring inferencing skills to retrieve information which was not explicit in the text.
