"Interaction" in Second Language Performance Assessment: Whose Performance?
McNamara, T. F.
Applied Linguistics, v18 n4 p446-66 Dec 1997
Addresses the notion of "interaction" within performance-based language assessment, arguing that a broader professional view of performance in second-language achievement assessment is needed to permit a focus on the social dimension of interaction. The article focuses on the assessment of spoken language through interviews and role-plays within the context of certification of adults in occupational settings. (70 references) (Author/CK)
