The Design and Validation of a Multi-Level Reading Comprehension Test.
Irvine, Aileen
Edinburgh Working Papers in Applied Linguistics, v4 p81-86 1993
Constructing a test of English-as-a-Foreign-Language reading comprehension that will accommodate the complete spectrum of performance from beginner to near native speaker can be problematic. Such a test is currently being developed at the Institute for Applied Language Studies at the University of Edinburgh (Scotland). With only a few hundred students to validate such a widely discriminating test, the problems become practical as well as theoretical. This article is a short report on why there was a need for the test and how the problems were approached. (Author/JL)
