Test of Language Judgment.
Mantell, Arlene
Designed to measure ability to choose rules of Standard English and Black English as they are appropriate to a situational context, the test consists of twenty items. It is an untimed group test, with reading assistance available if necessary from the examiner. Thirteen of the items present a situational context, requiring the subject to choose the more appropriate of two possible sentences; five items ask the subject to reply to a situational context; and two other items present a sentence and ask the subject to make an appropriate response. Of the twenty items, twelve require a response in Standard English and eight require a response in Black English. [This document is one of those reviewed in The Research Instruments Project (TRIP) monograph "Measures for Research and Evaluation in the English Language Arts" to be published by the Committee on Research of the National Council of Teachers of English in cooperation with the ERIC Clearinghouse on Reading and Communication Skills. A TRIP review which precedes the document lists its category (Standard English as a Second Language or Dialect), title, author, date, and age range (intermediate), and describes the instrument's purpose and physical characteristics.] (RB)
