Comparing PETS and GEPT in China and Taiwan
Wu, Mei
English Language Teaching, v5 n6 p48-53 Jun 2012
This paper compares the Public English Test System (PETS) administered in mainland, China and the General English Proficiency Test (GEPT) administered in Taiwan, from the aspects of test levels, test contents and scoring weight. Compared with the PETS, the GEPT is found to value the English productive skills more, and have a greater ability to discriminate the beginner or intermediate learners from the advanced learners.
