Does Thick Description Lead to Smart Tests? A Data-Based Approach to Rating Scale Construction.
Fulcher, Glenn
Language Testing, v13 n2 p208-38 Jul 1996
Examines the definition of fluency in the literature, and proposes a qualitative and quantitative approach that may be used to produce a "thick" description of language use for use in rating scale construction. The article suggests that validity considerations must be addressed in the construction phase of developing scales. (69 references) (Author/CK)
