Evaluating Proficiency in Comprehension Skills: How Can We Measure what We Can't Observe?
Hummel, Robert D.
ADFL Bulletin, v16 n2 p13-16 Jan 1985
Discusses the drawbacks of using the ACTFL-ETS Provisional Proficiency Guidelines in a university foreign language department. Recommends that reading skill should be measured by depth of understanding and perhaps speed rather than by the kind and number of specific elements of language the reader has failed to "understand."
