Abstract: This paper attempts to examine the effects of two modes of presentation, 1) audio-tape, and 2) video-tape, on the test scores of a test of listening comprehension. It relates how changes in technology can allow us to revise testing procedures and methodology. This paper also attempts to examine the performance of subjects on listening comprehension questions receiving various degrees of visual support. Discussion of the results of the study is followed by proposals on which to base improved studies in the future. The aim of this paper is to take a small step in determining the direction in which the testing of listening comprehension should take in the modern world. It argues that as tome goes by and technology improves, a closer look should be taken at both the teaching and testing of listening in regard to the use of video.
