Perkins, Kyle; And Others
Language Testing, v13 n1 p63-82 Mar 1996
Tests the hypothesis that there is no monotonic relationship between increasing competence in different linguistic domains and growth in second-language proficiency. The article concludes with an introduction to some assessment models that can accommodate discontinuous growth patterns. These models can describe and model a student's qualitative cognitive state and knowledge structures. (62 references) (Author/CK)
