Does Washback Exist?
Alderson, J. Charles; Wall, Dianne
Applied Linguistics, v14 n2 p115-29 Jun 1993
The notion of washback, that testing influences teaching, is explored and a series of possible hypotheses are advanced. The empirical research in general education and in language education is reviewed to determine whether washback actually exists, how it can be measured, and what accounts for its form. Proposals for future research are suggested. (34 references) (Author/LB)
