A Proposal on the Validation Model of Equivalence between PBLT and CBLT
Chen, Huilin
Journal of Education and Learning, v3 n4 p17-25 2014
The validity of the computer-based language test is possibly affected by three factors: computer familiarity, audio-visual cognitive competence, and other discrepancies in construct. Therefore, validating the equivalence between the paper-and-pencil language test and the computer-based language test is a key step in the procedure of designing a computer-based language test. By taking the test on Essentials of English-Speaking Countries as the case study, this paper elucidates the three-step model of validating the equivalence of the two types of test: investigating computer familiarity, assessing the impact of audio-visual cognitive competence, and examining other discrepancies in construct. The model proposed by this paper can offer some methodological insights on the way to establishing the validation model of the equivalence between the paper-and-pencil language test and the computer-based language test.
