Proposal Title

Phonological Awareness Skills Among Five Undergraduate Majors

Topic

Communication Sciences and Disorders

Description

The research study tested undergraduate majors on tasks to assess their current phonological awareness knowledge. Participants were Longwood University freshmen, who voluntarily participated in the study. Majors included nursing, business, music, education, and pre-communication sciences and disorders. The Four Phonological Awareness Tasks and Instructions Provided to Subjects (Moran and Fitch, 2001) assessment included Phoneme Switching, Phonetic Reversal, Phoneme Counting, and Vowel Matching. The scores will be compared to draw conclusions based on majors and their phonological skills. We hypothesize that CSD majors will have the best phonological awareness knowledge among other majors being assessed.
