Deriving Oral Assessment Scales across Different Tests and Rater Groups.
Chalhoub-Deville, Micheline
Language Testing, v12 n1 p16-33 Mar 1995
The purpose of this study was to derive the criteria/dimensions underlying learners' second-language oral ability scores across three tests: an oral interview, a narration, and a read-aloud. A stimulus tape of 18 speech samples was presented to 3 native speaker rater groups for evaluation. Results indicate that researchers might need to reconsider employing generic component scales. (JL)
