Testing and Student Learning.
Rivers, Wilga M.
Test design and content and course design and content are mutually influential. In accordance with changing trends in foreign language instruction--individualized learning, independent study, small group instruction, peer teaching--testing should likewise be revamped to reinforce and inform the learning process. Tests must take into account student interests, student ability, performance objectives, preferences among various learning modalities, and willingness to devote time and effort to achieving a particular goal. Criterion referenced tests at their best would incorporate all of these features. (DD)
