Examining The Prediction of Listening Comprehension Skills on Reading Comprehension Performances

Tevhide KARGIN, Birkan GÜLDENOĞLU, Cevriye ERGÜL

Abstract


This study aimed to examine the prediction of listening comprehension skills on reading comprehension performances. Participants were 52 students from kindergarten classes. Their listening comprehension abilities were tested when they were in kindergarten, then their reading comprehension performances when they were at first grade. Two measures (Listening Comprehension Test and Text Reading and Reading Comprehension Test) were used to evaluate the participants’ listening comprehension and reading comprehension skills. All evaluation sessions were carried out individually in a quiet room located in the school of the child. A Linear Regression Analysis was used to analyze the data. Findings from the present study indicated that listening comprehension skills were one of the significant predictors of reading comprehension performance. All findings were discussed with reference to the contents and processing procedure of both listening and reading comprehension skills.
