Watson-Baker Listening Post-test Scores and Analysis
May 4, 2019
Watson-Barker Listening Post-test (Form D) for Yolanda Young
Part One [Evaluating Message Content]: 6 of 8 correct [75%
Part Two [Understanding Meaning in Conversations]: 4 of 8 correct [50%]
Part Three [Understanding and Remembering Information in Lectures]: 8 of 8 correct [100%]
Part Four [Evaluating Emotional Meaning]: 6 of 8 correct [75%]
Part Five [Following Directions]: 6 of 8 correct [75%]
OVERAL: 30 of 40 correct [75%]
Watson Baker Posttest Analysis
a) Overall, the only section I improved was the “understanding and remembering
information” section. My scores increased in that area. In part one: Understanding and
Remembering Information in Lectures, my score went from a 75% (pretest) to 100%
(post-test). On the pre-test, I was able to use my listening to pick the most appropriate
response to the questions asked after listening to several short conversations. I was able
to use the different types of listening that we have learned in the class to choose the best
answer. For example, one of the statements was about someone who paid $145 for $195
ticket. Using the skill of paraphrasing I was able to decide the best answer was that the
person saved $50 on their ticket.
b) My weaknesses that was discovered was in part four: Evaluating Emotional Meaning.
During the pretest I received 100% but in the post-test I received a 75%. This part
demonstrated that sometimes how something is said is more important than what is said.
After listening to the statements, I needed to be able to interpret what the speaker meant
by what they said and what emotions were being displayed. In order to do this I needed
to listen to vocal cues. For example the first statement was a women saying: no one
deserves this promotion more than you do. When the statement, the word “you” was
emphasized indicating that the woman was proud of who received the promotion and
truly believed they deserved it. Sometimes it is not so easy to interpret and identify the
emotion behind the word, which is probably why I didn’t score as well in this section
during the post test.
c) My Comprehensive listening was mostly used in part 3: Understanding and
Remembering Information in Lectures. In both the pretest and post-test my score
increased. Comprehensive listening is listening to understand and to remember the
information received to be used later. In my daily comprehensive listening experiences,
I do not remember everything, so I usually take notes or leave reminders for myself. At
work, I am known for taking detailed notes. When there are important things that I need
to remember and be able to access quickly, I write them in my notepad that I use during
my meetings so I can refer to later. Before I leave work in the evening, I notate the
following things I need to do in my notepad and on my calendar so I do not forget.
d) During the pretest, several things distracted me when I was trying to complete the
test, which caused me to miss some things. During the post-test, there was no external
noise, but I distracted by my phone and the fact both my parents were not feeling
good. The doctors found a lump on my Mom’s uterus and my Dad’s blood sugar was
over 300. I completed the test on Saturday morning when I got up that morning. I
knew it would be difficult because I was thinking about them two, keeping my
cellphone on ring in case one of them called me. This was a huge impact on my test
because my overall scores decreased.
e) During the post-test, the only internal noise was my phone ringing. I was home alone.
During the pretest, my mind may have wandered. However, the post-test, I was thinking
about my parents. During the pretest, the internal noise caused me to lose focus. The
mental stress I felt during the post-test distracted me more this time. Thinking if I took a
few minutes to just sit in silence and get myself together before continuing it would help
but it did not.
f) My Watson-Barker Post-test scores in comparison to my Kentucky Listening Test scores
were average. The two areas of the test, which were similar, was part 4: Evaluating
Emotional Meaning (Watson-Baker) and part 2: Short-term Listening and Rehearsal
(Kentucky). For both tests, I scored a 100%. It was necessary to use my short-term
skills. I believe a huge reason for why my scores being the same was because there was
both visual and audio in the Watson-Baker test, which helped when trying to determine
what, is happening. In the Kentucky test there was only audio. Only hearing the
statement once without the aid of visuals could have made it difficult but it did not.
Especially for me, when I consider myself a visual listener. I like to see what we are
discussing. However learning to listen effectively without seeing things is a huge
improvement for me.

Watson Baker Pretest Analysis
1. I found the Watson-Baker listening pretest to be very interesting. I was very nervous at first
because I really didn’t know what to expect. However, I think my overall score was pretty good.
One of the strengths that were identified in my test was the ability to evaluate emotional
meaning. In part 4, I got all the questions correct. In my current position, my boss is always telling
me that I read into email or conversations in an emotionally. According to the test, I guess I do.
But I must be on point. Before that part of the test started the instructions said at times how
something is said is more important than what is said. I agree with this statement. I tell my team,
my family and my kids that it’s not what you say but how you say it. One example from the test he
says Sure, I’ll be happy to make your reservation. The word “your” was emphasized which led me
to think that they would be willing to make the reservation for that person only and no one else. I
thought I was on the wrong but when I say my scores I was pretty excited.
Another example in part 5. I received 7 out of the 8 correct. I consider myself to be a detailed
oriented person, but I feel as I’ve gotten older it takes me a little bit of time to catch on. However,
instructional directions is important and given to me on a daily by my boss. As a result, I was not
to surprise by how well I did in this segment of following directions. . An example from the test
would be the instructions on how a memo should be formatted or unjamming the fax machine.
This happens all the time at work so the directions provided in the test was not new to me.
2. The weakness identified in the test was part 2. Understanding meaning in conversations. I did get
6 out of the 8 questions correct. I remember guessing the answer to a question 3 about the
woman needing flights to different cities. I was more focused on the name of the 2 companies
mentioned in the conversation. So, when the question was asked about how many cities did she
need reservations for I got confused at first but I know the first city mentioned she was leaving
from? I wasn’t sure if I had selected correctly but noted on my scores that I did select the correct
answer.
3. I find that my attention span when I speak to others, I will prepare my answers prior to allowing
them to complete their statement. It’s something that I am working on daily. I also teach this to
my staff when they are on the phones with students. Allow the person to finish their statement
and clarify when necessary. I do this with my fiancé, he will be talking and I will be distracted by
whatever is going in my head and only hear half of what was said.
4. The external noise was my grandbaby trying to get my attention but I did tell her I could not talk
right now because I was taking a test. The TV noise was tuned out.
5. The internal noise I experienced is my personal thoughts. From time to time my mind would drift
but I knew I needed to get this done
