Persian Achievement Tests for Aural Comprehension, Speaking, Reading and Writing at the Elementary Level.
This volume contains achievement tests designed for American students studying Persian at the elementary level. They are constructed on the basis of materials related to course syllabi. Preceding the tests, the sources of the test data are reviewed and the main ones are listed. The allocation of points in each section of the test syllabus is outlined and test administration details such as timing and scoring are explained. The linguistic content covered at the elementary level includes pronunciation, sentence patterns, morphemes, orthography, and vocabulary. The actual test is divided into four main sections: (1) Aural comprehension and speaking, (2) Reading and Vocabulary, (3) Writing and Grammatical Structures, and (4) Dictation. The oral sections including the dictation, are designed to be administered in a language lab by means of master tapes. (CLK)
