Student Listening Inventory

 

This inventory should help identify your
listening strengths and weaknesses within the context of a college classroom.
The word speaker can mean the
instructor or another student. Remember that most of us overestimate how well
we listen. Give some serious, realistic thought to each statement before
responding. Use the following numbers to indicate how often you engage in these
listening behaviors: 1 = almost never, 2 = not often, 3 = sometimes, 4 = more
often than not, and 5 = almost always.
