Fulcher, G.
System, v26 n3 p281-302 Sep 1998
Considers the validity of Widdowson's discourse model of communicative competence and performance as the basis for developing tests of reading. Describes basic structure of the model and attempts to add to original description in such a way that is possible to design an operational test of the model components. The purpose of the model validation is to investigate the adequacy of the model as a theoretical basis for test design. (Author/VWL)
