English as a Second Language Tests.
Four tests, the Oral Placement Test, and Oral Production Test Levels I, II and III are designed to measure auditory comprehension, oral production, the ability to ask questions and conversational skills. The instruments are appropriate for use in adult basic education programs. The placement test can be used to place students at various class levels solely on the basis of oral language abilities. The oral production tests can be used to determine whether a student has mastered the oral language skills in a level and is ready to proceed to the next level. The achievement tests can be used diagnostically if the student's errors are noted on his test as it is scored. The test can be administered in 5 to 10 minutes. Copies of the tests, scoring keys, and directions for administering are provided. No technical data is reported. (NE)
