Proficiency Standards and Cut-Scores for Language Proficiency Tests.
Moy, Raymond H.
System, v12 n1 p13-24 1984
Discusses the problems associated with "grading on a curve," the approach often used for standard setting on language proficiency tests. Proposes four main steps presented in the setting of a non-arbitrary cut-score. These steps not only establish a proficiency standard checked by external criteria, but also check to see that the test covers the abilities of the test population. (SL)
