The C-Test: A Valid Operationalization of Reduced Redundancy Principle?
Babaii, Esmat; Ansary, Hasan
System, v29 n2 p209-19 Jun 2001
Explored whether or not the C-test serves as a valid operationalization of the reduced redundancy principle. Investigated the frequency and type of micro- and macro-level cues that English-as-a-foreign-language learners employ to restore the mutilations in the C-test. A C-test comprising five texts was administered concurrently with the Test of English as a Foreign Language to 32 engineering students taking an English for Science and Technology course.
