Shawl, James Robert
An operational definition of the standard for learner achievement at Level 2, with respect to the skills of reading and writing, was proposed for Spanish as one aspect of a research project. The method described, serving as the basis for articulation of level achievement, deals with general procedures, proposed operational definition of reading and writing for Level 2, analysis of the data collected, description of the experimental groups, grammatical structures, and materials and procedures in the experiment. The objectives of the collaborated project are examined as well as the conclusions and implications of this particular phase of the research. Statistical tables are included.
