The Whole Is More than the Sum of the Parts: Evaluation Criteria in Oral Tests.
Walker, Carolyn R.
British Journal of Language Teaching, v21 n1 p41-44 Spr 1983
Experience and research on the appropriateness and reliability of various criteria used in oral language tests are discussed. It is concluded that global marking schemes, which are less detailed, may enable the scorer to better evaluate communicative effectiveness, which includes both linguistic and paralinguistic factors.
