Hawaii Department of Education Speech-Communication Examination Audio Script.
Heinberg, Paul; And Others
This speech-communication examination is a "dyadic" test in which students, issued a set of cards to be marked according to directions, are assigned partners with whom they communicate and respond to in turn. This latest version of dyadic tests has been administered in rural and urban public schools in Hawaii, to speakers of nonstandard English (Hawaiian Pidgin). The format allows the students 14 roles to assume during the test (e.g., tutor/tutee in rote numerical or verbal tutorials, interviewer/interviewee in rote numerical or verbal interviews). Scoring is right minus wrong. Roles are summed across sex and grade level separately. Criteria are number of six source roles in lowest quartile, number of six respondent roles in lowest quartile, and number of 14 roles in lowest quartile.
