An Investigation of Planning Time and Proficiency Level on Oral Test Discourse.
Wigglesworth, Gillian
Language Testing, v14 n1 p85-106 Mar 1997
In this study, planning time was manipulated as a variable in a trial administration of a semi-direct oral interaction test. Discourse analytic techniques were used to determine the nature and/or significance of difference in the elicited discourse across two conditions in terms of complexity and accuracy. Findings suggest that planning time may improve accuracy on some measures for high-proficiency candidates. (18 references) (Author/CK)
