A Continuing Survey of Foreign Language Resources of the Country through Professional Leadership in the Development and Use of Foreign Language Tests.
Paquette, F. Andre
The survey of foreign language testing described in this paper resulted in the issuing of three handbooks and a special validation report, encompassing the results of research, consultation with professional committees, and significant position statements in four major areas of foreign language testing: placement of incoming students in foreign languages at the college level, the use of standardized achievement tests in foreign languages and the preparation of teacher made tests, interpretation of the results of the MLA Foreign Language Proficiency Tests for Teachers and Advanced Students, and validation of the Proficiency Tests in terms of the native speaker. The paper includes a detailed outline of the objectives of the survey, the background of the survey, the methods and procedures used, and the results, findings, and conclusions. (Author/HW)
