Does the degree of aural comprehension differ among 3rd grade female students in the State of Kuwait in such a way that can be attributed to the educational program (based on digital interactive/ normal way)?

The study sample consists of (48) 3rd grade female students. All the participants in the study are currently studying in the second semester of the academic year 2015 – 2016 at Sabeekah Al-Anjari Primary School, in Mubarak Al-Kabeer area in the State of Kuwait. The sample is divided into two groups: the experimental group, with (23) students who are studyind the current education system with digital interactive stories, and a control group, with (25) students who are studying the normal program.

To achieve the objective of the study, a test has been designed to measure aural comprehension of 3rd grade female students. The test has been also checked in terms of validity and credibility, and has been applied to study participants in post and pro stages. Afterwards, data analysis reveals the following result: There are significant differences between the averages of the two groups (experimental group and control group) at the level of significance (α = 0.05) in terms of aural comprehension skills. These differences, in the measured skills, were in favor of the experimental group, and all of which can be attributed to the program.
