The Direct Testing of Oral Skills in University Foreign Language Teaching.
Hall, Christopher
IRAL, v31 n1 p23-38 Feb 1993
To study the adequacy of the brief oral examination format as a basis for assessing oral skills, the study compared samples of 15-minute oral exams with 3-hour written exam results by the same students. The resultant average size of oral samples was about 77% of that of written samples, with good comparability, leading to useful conclusions about oral testing. (CP)
