The Revised Listening Concepts Inventory

The LCI was first introduced by Imhof and Janusik (2006) with the goal of creating a diagnostic means of measuring perceptions of listening cognitions.  The original scale consisted of 65 potential synonyms of listening. Thirty-three (33) of these items factored into four areas—listening as organizing information, relationship building, critical assessment, and as learning/integrating information.

Bodie (2010) designed a series of studies to provide validity evidence for the LCI.  Across studies, data were more consistent with a 15-item scale reflecting the four means of conceptualizing listening suggested in the original LCI.  This revised version can be found here.
