Foreign Language Vocabulary Learning--A Criterion of Learning Achievement.
Trampe, Peter af
In order to accurately assess the learning of vocabulary words, a criterion of learning achievement must be set for each word or group of words. This criterion would reflect: (1) the amount of semantic, grammatical, and phonological information the learner had to possess in order to have learned the word; (2) the receptive and productive processes the learner would have to be able to use with the word; and (3) the necessary degree of mastery of those processes. This is seldom achieved in practice, but such criteria of vocabulary learning should be specified in empirical research in order to make comparisons possible. (MSE)
