Proceedings of the National Conference on Professional Priorities. [Evaluation.]
American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages, Hastings-on-Hudson, NY.
The following position papers on evaluation are presented: (1) "Curricular and Comprehensive Program Evaluation," by Ray Clifford; (2) Evaluation--Proficiency Goals, CBTE National Assessment: How Do They Interrelate?" by Randall L. Jones; and (3) "Priorities in Classroom Testing for the 1980s," by Alice C. Omaggio. The first paper describes an action plan for the establishment of a national language achievement and proficiency program. The second paper reviews testing research and outlines developments in the three areas mentioned in the title. The third paper discusses the need to create classroom testing programs that reflect the dual goal of linguistic and communicative proficiency. The paper also provides numerous examples and ideas for contextualizing test items in the four skill areas, appropriate for beginning and intermediate levels. Five recommendations on priorities in evaluation conclude the section. (AMH)
