Listening Tests for The Ninth Grade Of Private Junior High Schools
The purpose of this study is to find whether private schools have listening tests for the requirement of graduation in the ninth grade stated in their guideline books. The questionnaires were distributed to the teachers and their students from twenty-six schools. The results indicated that each school had a listening test for the requirement of graduation but there was no guidance among the schools. This study found that the teachers needed the listening test handbook to equate the listening test for the ninth grade. This research may contribute to help the teachers develop their knowledge to equate perception so as to obtain a handbook for a listening test that can be used for the whole school.
