IMPROVING MULTIPLE-CHOICE GRAMMAR TESTS IN GERMAN.
VALETTE, REBECCA M.
AN ANALYSIS OF THE PERFORMANCE OF FIRST-SEMESTER COLLEGE STUDENTS ON A MULTIPLE-CHOICE TEST OF PROFICIENCY IN GERMAN GRAMMAR REVEALED A CURIOUS PATTERN. LOW SCORING STUDENTS TRIED TO ESTABLISH A CORRELATION BETWEEN THE DETERMINER AND THE WORD PRECEDING IT, APPARENTLY BY MATCHING SIMILAR OR PARALLEL FINAL VOWELS OR CONSONANTS WITH INFLECTED ENDINGS (FOR EXAMPLE, "NEBEN DEN" OR "UEBER EINER"). TESTS SHOULD BE IMPROVED, CONSEQUENTLY, BY REVISING ALL ITEMS IN WHICH POOR STUDENT MIGHT COME UPON THE CORRECT RESPONSE BY FOLLOWING SUCH AN ERRONEOUS SYSTEM. THIS ARTICLE IS A REPRINT FROM "THE GERMAN QUARTERLY" VOLUME 40, NUMBER 1, JANUARY 1967. (AS)
