The Assessment of Language Proficiency in Bilingual Children: An Analysis of Theories and Instrumentation.
Stansfield, Charles
The three parts of a theory used in the design of a language proficiency test--linguistic components, communicative skills, and the sociolinguistic domain--are described in relation to language proficiency and testing models. In line with this discussion, a review of test formats is made with some assessment of the advantages and disadvantages of each one. Finally, a brief overview is provided of several instruments that have been developed to test language proficiency and dominance. In conclusion, test development from a combination of the three theories outlined at the beginning of the study is advocated. (AMH)
