The Test at the Gate: Models of Literacy in Reading Assessment.
Hill, Clifford; Parry, Kate
TESOL Quarterly, v26 n3 p433-61 Fall 1993
In a discussion of the limitations of reading tests to assess literacy, Street's "autonomous model of literacy" is critiqued and an alternative approach, described as a pragmatic model, is proposed. The alternative approach reflects the social dimension of literacy activities and views reading and writing as inseparable. (32 references) (Author/LB)
