Constructing an Online Test Framework, Using the Example of a Sign Language Receptive Skills Test
Haug, Tobias; Herman, Rosalind; Woll, Bencie
Deafness and Education International, v17 n1 p3-7 Mar 2015
This paper presents the features of an online test framework for a receptive skills test that has been adapted, based on a British template, into different sign languages. The online test includes features that meet the needs of the different sign language versions. Features such as usability of the test, automatic saving of scores, and score reporting have been implemented. The background information of the children and the test results are saved in a secure databank. When consent has been granted, these data can be used for cross-linguistic research in the future. This will not only help us to broaden our understanding of deaf children's sign language development, but will also help us to further improve sign language testing. Furthermore, implications for research and practice will be discussed.
