A sample of 583 primary school children was used in an investigation relating to the reliability and validity of oral cloze as a measure of listening comprehension.

The dissertation submits that the traditional method of testing listening comprehension based on the "passage followed by questions" model fails to adequately consider the syntactic aspects of comprehension. The cloze procedure, however, has been reported to measure students' comprehension of grammatical elements.
