Tests de langues vivantes: tests, tests de savoir, tests de savoir-faire (On Language Testing; Testing, Testing Knowledge, Testing Communicative Competence).
Schwarz, Michel P.M.
Francais dans le Monde, v21 n165 p48-57 Nov-Dec 1981
Discusses general principles of language testing, stressing objectivity and reliability as the key terms. However, maintains that it is impossible to obtain a direct measure of linguistic competence and consequently questions the value of standard grading procedures. Instead, proposes an evaluation system based on the achievement of specific performance objectives. (MES)
