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.
