Language Testing, v15 n3 p380-414 1998
A study investigated the factorial distinctiveness of two receptive language skills, listening and reading, and the equivalence of factor structure across two groups. Subjects were 156 students, Korean-Americans and non-Korean-Americans, in grades two through four in a two-way bilingual education program. Students were tested in listening and reading in Korean. Implications for both linguistic research and methodology are discussed. (Author/MSE)
