OBJECTIVE TESTING AND STANDARDIZED TESTS IN MODERN FOREIGN LANGUAGES.
FAULKNER, JAMES C.
A BRIEF HISTORY IS GIVEN OF THE DEVELOPMENT OF OBJECTIVE FOREIGN LANGUAGE TESTS FOR HIGH SCHOOLS AND COLLEGES, FROM 1916 TO THE PRESENT. THERE IS A DESCRIPTION OF THE EARLY EFFORTS TO CONSTRUCT OBJECTIVE TESTS AND THE IMPERFECTIONS OF SOME OF THESE EXAMINATIONS. LATER TESTS, PARTICULARLY THOSE IN CURRENT USE, ARE DESCRIBED IN DETAIL, WITH EMPHASIS ON THE VARIETY OF TECHNIQUES USED IN TESTING THE LANGUAGE SKILLS. STANDARDIZED TESTS CURRENTLY AVAILABLE FOR FRENCH, GERMAN, ITALIAN, RUSSIAN, AND SPANISH ARE LISTED, WITH ANNOTATIONS OF FORMAT, CONTENT, LEVEL, PRICE OF SPECIMEN SETS, AND TIME REQUIRED FOR ADMINISTRATION.
