The Role of Amplified Objectives in Domain-Referenced Language Program Evaluation.
In a discussion on amplified objectives in language evaluation, this paper delineates various strands of contextual input that constitute the design of a language program. Philosophical, sociocultural, and psychological aspects are included. Amplified objectives are discussed in the context of domain-referenced language testing and program evaluation that incorporates the objectives into each phase of program evaluation (context, input, process, product, and overall evaluation). It is noted that by incorporating the context and content of language along with the skills, test techniques, stimulus forms and response mode, amplified objectives provide strong guidelines for developing and evaluating a language program. An example of amplified objectives for an English course in Mathayomsuksa VI (Grade 12) in Thailand is included. Contains 11 references. (LB)
