EVALUATING THE OBJECTIVES IN FOREIGN-LANGUAGE TEACHING.
VALETTE, REBECCA M.
AUDIOLINGUAL TEACHING METHODS HAVE CREATED THE NEED FOR NEW TESTING TECHNIQUES IN THE FOUR LANGUAGE SKILLS OF LISTENING, SPEAKING, AND WRITING. VARIOUS CURRENT METHODS AND SPECIFIC STANDARDIZED TESTS FOR EVALUATING EACH OF THE SKILLS, INCLUDING PURE SKILLS TESTS WHICH UTILIZE ONLY ONE SKILL IN BOTH STIMULUS AND RESPONSE AND HYBRID SKILLS TESTS WHICH EMPLOY TWO OR MORE SKILLS PER ITEM, ARE DESCRIBED. SUGGESTIONS FOR FURTHER RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT IN LANGUAGE TESTING INCLUDE THE FOLLOWING--(1) COMPARABLE TESTS IN THE FOUR SKILLS SHOULD BE DEVELOPED, (2) PURE LISTENING COMPREHENSION TESTS SHOULD BE STANDARDIZED, AND THEIR RESULTS NATIONALLY COMPARED TO THOSE OF PURE READING TESTS, (3) THE PRECISE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN THE COMPREHENSION AND THE PRODUCTION SKILLS SHOULD BE INVESTIGATED, (4) STUDIES FOR EACH FOREIGN LANGUAGE SHOULD DETERMINE THE APPLICABILITY OF "PARTIAL PRODUCTION" TECHNIQUES, AND (5) THE VALIDITY OF THE DICTATION IN MEASURING THE STUDENT'S COMMAND OF THE LANGUAGE SHOULD BE INVESTIGATED. THIS ARTICLE IS PUBLISHED IN THE "INTERNATIONAL REVIEW OF APPLIED LINGUISTICS IN LANGUAGE TEACHING," VOLUME 4, NUMBER 2, 1966. (AUTHOR)
