Computer Assisted Language Learning: Testing or Teaching?
Jones, Christopher
ELT Journal, v37 n3 p247-50 Jul 1983
The criticism that language materials often test rather than teach is discussed. Exam testing is distinguished from continuous monitoring, a necessary function that well-constructed computer assisted language instruction may perform well. It is argued that computer tests also teach, and can handle much of the remedial instruction otherwise undertaken by the teacher. (MSE)
