Oral Skills Testing: A Rhetorical Approach.
Lazaraton, Anne; Riggenbach, Heidi
Issues in Applied Linguistics, v1 n2 p196-217 Dec 1990
The development, implementation, and evaluation of a semidirect test of oral proficiency, the Rhetorical Task Examination (RTE), is reported. The RTE proposes a compromise approach to rating oral skills by having two scales: one for the functional ability for accomplishing rhetorical tasks and one for linguistic competence.
