"Cognitive Diagnosis and Q-Matrices in Language Assessment": A Commentary
Alderson, J. Charles
Language Assessment Quarterly, v7 n1 p96-103 2010
This commentary appraises the 2009 special issue of "Language Assessment Quarterly" on "Cognitive Diagnosis and Q-matrices in Language Assessment." Despite a number of weaknesses, specifically in attempting inappropriately to retrofit a suite of proficiency tests to diagnostic purposes, the special issue is seen as a landmark in the development of our understanding of the need for research into diagnostic language assessment.
