TRANSLATED READING TESTS AS CULTURE-FAIR MEASURES FOR FOREIGN STUDENTS.
KUMBARACI, TURKAN E.
A COMPARISON OF AN ENGLISH LANGUAGE READING COMPREHENSION TEST WITH ITS TURKISH TRANSLATION AND RETRANSLATION WAS CONDUCTED. THE INSTRUMENTS CONSISTED OF TWO PARALLEL FORMS OF A READING TEST OF COLLEGE ENTRANCE LEVEL. THEY WERE TRANSLATED INTO TURKISH, AND THEN RETRANSLATED INTO ENGLISH. SUPPLEMENTARY MEASURES WERE ALSO EMPLOYED. THE SAMPLE CONSISTED OF 896 TURKISH HIGH SCHOOL SENIORS AND COLLEGE STUDENTS, AND 1,324 AMERICAN HIGH SCHOOL SENIORS AND COLLEGE STUDENTS. SEVERAL SUGGESTIONS WERE DISCUSSED FOR THE PERFECTION OF THE INSTRUMENTS USED FOR SCREENING FOREIGN STUDENTS AND FOR CROSS-CULTURAL ITEM STATISTICS. (RS)
