How Using Dictionaries Affects Performance in Multiple-Choice EFL Tests.
Nesi, Hilary; Meara, Paul
Reading in a Foreign Language, v8 n1 p631-43 Fall 1991
Focusing on the relationship between performance on reading tests and dictionary use, this study confirms a previous finding that dictionary availability does not significantly affect test scores; it does, however, lengthen test completion time. The authors discuss experimental conditions, test item types, usability of particular dictionary types, and users. (Contains four references.) (CNP)
