Modelling Performance: Opening Pandora's Box.
McNamara, T. F.
Applied Linguistics, v16 n2 p159-79 Jun 1995
This paper argues that it is necessary for researchers and test developers in the area of language performance testing to have a clear understanding of the role of underlying performance capacities in second language performance. It critically evaluates the models proposed by Hymes, Canale and Swain, and Bachman. (71 references) (MDM)
