Abstract:

The literature survey constitutes an initial research effort designed to identify those factors which appear to be cirtical in auditory comprehension and which may eventually be utilized in programs to enhance the listening abilities of Navy personnel. A review of recent research was needed to assess the new and changing concepts of listening which are now available. A broad survey of listening information sources was conducted, consisting mainly of an overview of the available research literature, correspondence and personal contacts with other research groups, and first-hand evaluation of existing listening programs, equipment, and tests. The findings from the literature were discussed under three topic areas including Elements of listening, measurement of listening, and relationships of listening ability to other variables. Author
