Using Retelling Protocols to Explore Listeners’ Mental Representation of the Two Mini-Lectures

  • Haiping WangEmail author


This chapter presents analysis of Phase 2 retelling protocols that substantially compensate Phase 1 TAP data in the aspect of probing into listeners’ mental representation of mini-lectures. The purpose of aligning phase 1 and phase 2 data is to establish a solid understanding of test-takers’ cognitive processes in both stages, i.e. the stage of listening to the mini-lectures and the stage of completing the listen-to-summarize tasks. Another focus of this chapter is to explore the differences between high achievers and low achievers in terms of their mental representation of the mini-lecture discourse evidenced by retelling protocols.
