Toward the Measurement of Functional Proficiency: Contextualization of the Noise Test
Gaies, Stephen J.
TESOL Quarterly, 11, 1, 51-57, Mar 77
The "noise" test is a dictation of English sentences recorded on tape with accompanying background white noise; it is used to evaluate English proficiency. This study describes a revision to increase test validity. Technical aspects of recording, syntactic comparability of test items, and data on revised instrument performance are discussed. (CHK)
