The "Communicative" Legacy in Language Testing.
Fulcher, Glenn
System, v28 n4 p483-97 Dec 2000
Discusses the phenomenon of communicative language testing as it emerged in the late 1970s and early 1980s as a reaction against tests constructed of multiple choice items and the perceived overemphasis of reliability. Traces the legacy of the communicative movement from its first formulation, through present conundrums, to tomorrow's research questions. (Author/VWL)
