Some Major Tests. Advances in Language Testinq, Series: 1. Papers in Applied Linguistics.
Spolsky, Bernard, Ed.
This fascicle is intended to give some general notion of the state of the art in language testing by describing and reviewing several recent major tests. Its intention is to be representative rather than exhaustive. The following papers are included: (1) "Language Proficiency Tests Developed for the IEA International Study of Achievement in French as a Foreign Language," by John B. Carroll; (2) "The IEA International Study of Achievement Test of Proficiency in English as a Foreign Language," by E. Glyn Lewis; (3) "The Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL)," by John W. Oller, Jr. and Bernard Spolsky; (4) "TOEFL in Recent Years," by Paul J. Angelis; (5) "The Oral Interview of the Foreign Service Institute," by Randall L. Jones; and (6) "A Review of the Bilingual Syntax Measure," by Ellen J. Rosansky. A bibliography completes the volume. (Author/AMH)
