Uses of Written Tests in the Basic Course.
Smith, Robert M.
Two implicit mandates are posited as fundamental to the consideration of any successful evaluation procedure by every instructor in the basic speech course. First, a clear philosophical position must be taken for guiding both the course objectives and the evaluation techniques. Second, a successful method for executing the philosophical position must be implemented. Described in the article are three forms of tests currently being developed at Wichita State University for use in the basic course. Written tests which meet certain criteria in development and which are matched to a philosophy conducive to developing and evaluating communicative competencies become the most valuable part of the basic course.
