Description

The ability to process spoken English despite classroom distractions, and retain auditory information presented by instructors is imperative at the university level. Research supports the detrimental effects of background noise in English as a Second Language (ESL) students; however, the auditory processing category of tolerance-fading memory is composed of both auditory figure-ground and short-term memory. The purpose of the study is to measure tolerance-fading memory in ESL students through a selection of tests (MSTB/AzBio Sentences, CID-W22 and TAPS-3).
