Do you have students who struggle to follow complex or compound sentences in conversation? Do you students have difficulty remembering or processing multistep directions? These problems can result from difficulty with auditory discrimination or working auditory memory. This is common with students who have hearing loss, auditory processing disorder, language delays, and ADD.
Help your students work towards a goal of better auditory processing and comprehension while collecting data towards IEP goals. This progress monitoring activity is administered by reading each sentence, one at a time, slowly and clearly to a student. After each sentence, the student must repeat back exactly what was said without being able to see the paper. You can repeat the sentence if needed, but make a note that you did so to be able to gauge the student's true level. If they get it right, move on to the next sentence. If not, stop there and continue to work on sentences with the same number of syllables.
This assessment goes from 2 syllable sentences consisting of 2 words to 8-word sentences with a maximum of 11 syllables total. It is appropriate for ages 7/8 up to adults and can be used in special education classrooms, as RTI, or in therapy sessions. Also beneficial to work on listening skills with English language learners.
