A STUDY OF THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN SCORES ON THE MLA FOREIGN LANGUAGE PROFICIENCY TESTS FOR TEACHERS AND ADVANCED STUDENTS AND RATINGS OF TEACHER COMPETENCE.
MELTON, RICHARD S.; MYERS, CHARLES T.
DURING THE SUMMER OF 1963, APPROXIMATELY 3,000 TEACHERS ATTENDING NDEA FOREIGN LANGUAGE INSTITUTES WERE TESTED AND EVALUATED FOR COMPETENCY. THIS DOCUMENT DESCRIBES THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN THE RATINGS GIVEN THEM BY FACULTY GROUPS AT THE INSTITUTES AND THEIR SCORES ON THE MLA FOREIGN LANGUAGE PROFICIENCY TESTS FOR TEACHERS AND ADVANCED STUDENTS. MORE THAN ONE-HALF OF THE REPORT IS A SERIES OF TABULATED SUMMARIES SHOWING THE SCORE RANGES AND THE DEGREE OF CORRESPONDENCE BETWEEN THE TESTS AND THE RATINGS. THE CORRESPONDENCE WAS GREATEST FOR THE FOUR BASIC LANGUAGE SKILLS TESTS AND LEAST FOR THE TESTS IN APPLIED LINGUISTICS, CIVILIZATION AND CULTURE, AND PROFESSIONAL PREPARATION. ALSO INCLUDED IS A CHECKLIST OF QUALIFICATIONS FOR SECONDARY SCHOOL FOREIGN LANGUAGE TEACHERS. (GJ)
