Marquardt, Thomas P.; Gillam, Ronald B.
Language Testing, v16 n3 p249-69 Jul 1999
Considers the ecological validity of tests in predicting the effects of speech and language impairment on communicative performance in real-world settings and the need for systematic observation of communicative behaviors, particularly of individuals from other cultures. Discusses whether standardized testing and systematic observation are sufficient for identifying communication disorders when there is limited theoretical understanding of the disorder. (Author/VWL)
