The Stability of Oral Proficiency Assessment on the Oral Interview Testing Procedures.
Shohamy, Elana
Language Learning, v33 n4 p527-40 Dec 1983
Reports on study in which students of Hebrew as a second language took four versions of oral proficiency test. Results indicate that different speech styles and topics significantly affected students' scores, and correlational analyses between pairs pointed to low reliability and lack of stability of the test. Urges caution in making decisions about proficiency based on test results alone. (EKN)
