Alberta Dept. of Education, Edmonton. Language Services Branch.
The French as a Second Language model tests for beginning levels 1, 2, and 3 were designed to evaluate students' language performance, as outlined in the program of studies for Alberta, Canada, in listening and reading comprehension and oral and written production, communication skills, culture, language and general language knowledge. The tests are offered as suggestions and may be adapted to local needs. Each test has an organizing theme for integration of skill areas (e.g., the school year) and within it, explores a number of fields of experience (e.g., school, weather, people, animals, holidays and celebrations). The first three sections of the guide are test administration manuals that detail the test plan, directions for its use, an annotated test, oral text transcripts, a correction guide, and an analysis of results and a table of specifications indexed to the program of studies, the relevant portion of which is also outlined. The subsequent three sections contain blackline masters for the tests themselves. A worksheet for developing test items is also included. Narratives are provided in both English and French. (MSE)
