Testing Textbook Theories and Tests: The Case of Suprasegmentals in a Pronunciation Textbook.
Gorsuch, Greta J.
System, v29 n1 p119-36 Mar 2001
Examines the dual challenges teachers often face: (1) testing the theoretical assumptions made by the authors of textbooks; and (2) evaluation of achievement tests that have been developed for use with those textbooks. Addresses these issues in the context of the use of an English-as-a-Foreign/Second-Language pronunciation textbook and achievement test, "Clear Speech." (Author/VWL)
