THE DESIGN OF OBJECTIVE DIAGNOSTIC AND ATTAINMENT TESTS OF A READING-WRITING COMMAND OF FRENCH.
OSMAN, NEILE
READING AND WRITING SKILLS CAN BE TESTED OBJECTIVELY WITHOUT USING TRADITIONAL TRANSLATION TESTS. WHEN READING FRENCH, STUDENTS NEED TO RECOGNIZE WORDS IN BOTH UNINFLECTED AND INFLECTED FORMS TO ATTACH MEANING TO WORDS IN CONTEXT, AND TO REACT TO THE MEANING IMPLICATIONS OF FRENCH SENTENCE STRUCTURE. WHEN WRITING FRENCH, THEY NEED TO PRODUCE APPROPRIATE WORDS IN BOTH UNINFLECTED AND INFLECTED FORMS AND TO USE FRENCH SENTENCE STRUCTURE APPROPRIATELY. OBJECTIVE TESTS DESIGNED TO MEASURE THESE SKILLS CAN BE USED EITHER AS DIAGNOSTIC TESTS TO POINT UP DEFICIENCIES REQUIRING FURTHER TEACHING, OR AS ATTAINMENT TESTS TO ASSESS THE STANDARD ACHIEVED AT CERTAIN MAIN POINTS OF THE COURSE. THESE TESTS REQUIRE CAREFUL CONSTRUCTION, BUT CAN BE SCORED EASILY AND OBJECTIVELY. SEVERAL EXAMPLES, SUGGESTIONS FOR SCORING, AND HINTS FOR CONSTRUCTION ARE GIVEN FOR OBJECTIVE GROUP TESTS OF WORD RECOGNITION, READING COMPREHENSION, WRITTEN COMMAND, AND WRITTEN SELF-EXPRESSION. THIS ARTICLE IS PUBLISHED IN "BABEL," VOLUME 1, NUMBER 3, OCTOBER 1965. (AM)
