Assessment in English for Academic Purposes: Putting Content Validity in Its Place.
Fulcher, Glenn
Applied Linguistics, v20 n2 p221-26 Jun 1999
Testing and assessment in English-for-Academic-purposes (EAP) contexts has traditionally been carried out as a needs analysis of learners or a content analysis of courses. This article reassesses this approach to the development and validation of EAP tests on the basis of a theoretical model and recent research into content specificity. (VWL)
