RESEARCH OF AUDITORY ATTENTION
The exercise for testing auditory attention comprised 5 short instructions, given one after the other. The pupils had to memorize the instructions and then fill in a worksheet. We evaluated the exercise according to a set of predetermined criteria.
The experimental class confirmed our hypothesis after the testing in December already, namely that everyday, systematic fostering of auditory attention can increase the pupils' concentration and thus contribute to the reduction of the number of mistakes. The percentage of the improvement of auditory attention visibly increased after the tests in March, by no less than 65% according to the initial state, and additionally confirmed our hypothesis. In June the percentage of improvement according to the control classes was quite high as well.
The control classes, in which nobody carried out our exercises, improved according to our expectations, but not to such an extent as the experimental class.
From the results obtained it can be confirmed that an everyday targeted conduct of exercises for the fostering of active attention has a positive impact on the auditory attention with pupils.
