Language Testing: The Construction and Use of Foreign Language Tests. A Teacher's Book.
Lado, Robert
Intended as a comprehensive introduction to the construction and use of foreign language tests, this book utilizes modern linguistic knowledge as a base for scientific language testing. Major attention in testing is focused on such integrated language skills as auditory and reading comprehension, speaking, writing, translation, and over-all language control. Teaching of cross-cultural understanding and abstract values is also covered. Final chapters on the refinement and use of language tests are devoted to definition and description of norms, validity, reliability, item analysis, scoring, experimental design, and achievement.
