The Impact of Gender in Oral Proficiency Testing.
O'Loughlin, Kieran
Language Testing, v19 n2 p169-91 Apr 2002
Discusses the role of gender in speaking tests and suggests that in oral interviews it is possible that both interviewing and rating may be highly gendered processes. Audiotaped female and male test-takers who undertook practice IELTS interviews, one with a female interviewer and once with a male interviewer. Results from discourse and test score analyses indicate gender did not have a significant impact on the IELTS interview. (Author/VWL)
