ESL Placement. From Theory to Practice.
Walsh, Mark
Adult Literacy and Basic Education, v7 n1 insert 1983
This placement test is intended to help teachers conduct oral and literacy assessment when placing adults into English as a second language (ESL) programs. The 15-item oral assessment, which consists of three 5-item series, includes questions relating to students' backgrounds and goals that are designed to determine whether the students' English conversational skills are presently at a beginning, intermediate, or advanced level. The literacy assessment, which also consists of 15 questions eliciting information pertaining to students' backgrounds and goals, is intended to determine whether a student (1) is literate in his or her native language and (2) has some writing skills in English.
