IEA Six-Subject Survey Instruments: English as a Foreign Language Tests.
International Association for the Evaluation of Educational Achievement, Stockholm (Sweden).
In 1965 the International Association for the Evaluation of Educational Achievement (IEA) inaugurated a cross-national survey of achievement in six subjects: Science, Reading Comprehension, Literature, English as a Foreign Language, French as a Foreign Language, and Civic Education. The overall aim of the project was to use international tests in order to relate student achievement and attitudes to instructional, social, and economic factors, and from the results to establish generalizations of value to policy makers worldwide. Contained here are nine tests of English as a Foreign Language measuring listening comprehension, reading comprehension, writing, speaking (Structural Control), speaking (oral reading), and speaking (fluency) for student populations II, IV. Population II consists of students aged 14 to 15 years; population IV, students enrolled in the final year of pre-university training. (RC)
