Rate Your Listening

Listening and Note Taking

Listening and hearing aren't quite the same. You can effortlessly hear your teacher, but it takes effort to carefully listen to what is being said. The following survey will help you rate your listening habits.

Your Turn For each listening strategy, rate your habits from 1 (never) to 6 (always). (You can download and complete this Listening Survey.) Review your score and focus on the strategies you should use more often.

  1. Prepare to listen and keep a goal in mind.
  2. Listen carefully.
  3. Listen for the facts.
  4. Separate fact from opinion.
  5. Listen for signals.
  6. Listen for patterns of organization.
  7. Listen for details.
  8. Listen to directions.
  9. Reflect upon what is being said.
  10. Put the lecture in your own words.
