Hidalgo, María Ángeles; Lázaro-Ibarrola, Amparo – Studies in Second Language Learning and Teaching, 2020
Research into the potential of collaborative writing is relatively new. Similarly, task repetition (TR), which has been claimed to be a valuable tool for language learning, has been rarely explored in the context of writing. Therefore, little is known about the potential of combining TR and collaborative writing, and even less if we focus on young…

Rastgou, Ali; Storch, Neomy; Knoch, Ute – Iranian Journal of Language Teaching Research, 2020
Despite teachers' mainstream practices in L2 writing classrooms addressing different dimensions of writing over time, much of the research on feedback in recent years has been of relative short duration and has mainly focused on accuracy. The current longitudinal study investigated the influence of sustained teacher written feedback on accuracy,…

Ghahari, Shima; Farokhnia, Farzaneh – International Journal of School & Educational Psychology, 2018
Literature on the learning benefits and interpersonal mechanisms of peer assessment (PA) and teacher assessment (TA) has been inconsistent. As part of a large-scale study, the research reported here has addressed the effect of formative PA on language grammar uptake and complexity, accuracy, and fluency triad scale levels, in comparison both to TA…

Pallotti, Gabriele – Applied Linguistics, 2009
This article critically scrutinizes a number of issues involved in the definition and operationalization of complexity, accuracy, and fluency (CAF) constructs. It argues for maintaining clearer distinctions between CAF, on the one hand, and notions such as linguistic development and communicative adequacy, on the other. Adequacy, in particular,…

Martinez, Leandro Navas; Llorca, Jose Antonio Soriano; Tello, Francisco Pablo Holgado – Electronic Journal of Research in Educational Psychology, 2013
Introduction: The aim of this study was to verify whether the six-dimension structure of the Physical Self-Concept Questionnaire is maintained with Chilean students, and to assess its psychometric qualities in this population. Method: One thousand seven hundred sixty-seven students took part in this research, from Central and South Chile; 45.8%…

Easton, Claire; Morris, Marian; Gee, Geoff – National Foundation for Educational Research, 2010
The local authority research consortium (LARC), established in 2007, supports children's service authorities in using and conducting research to evaluate progress, to inform practice, share findings and make recommendations locally and nationally. This summary reports the collective findings of the 24 authorities involved in the LARC2 project…

Norgate, Roger; Traill, Maria; Osborne, Cara – Educational Psychology in Practice, 2009
This study explores the profile of Common Assessment Framework (CAF) assessments and the perceptions of assessors during the early phase of its implementation. Whilst there was diversity in who completed CAFs, schools undertook the most. Headteachers and other school staff completing the assessment felt that the questions tended to be intrusive…

Pahl, Pamela S. – BU Journal of Graduate Studies in Education, 2019
Women continue to struggle in order to integrate successfully into the Canadian Armed Forces (CAF). The study presented in this article examined the cultural experiences of ten non-commissioned female-identified members serving in the ranks of Corporal to Sergeant in male-dominated, non-combat arms occupations. The volunteers were asked 28…

Qiu, Xuyan – Language Teaching Research, 2020
Tasks with different design factors may dissimilarly affect oral production, and thus can be adopted for different pedagogical purposes. However, the functions of task types are not fully explored. To address this gap, this study investigates the influence of content familiarity and task repetition on sixty English as a foreign language learners'…

Han, Jae Hoon; Finkelstein, Adam – Computers & Education, 2013
Clicker Assessment and Feedback (CAF) is an instructional assessment and feedback strategy that is incorporated with interactive technologies, often referred to as clickers. Several thousand colleges and universities across Europe and North America have adopted CAF as a strategy in their classrooms. This study has three major objectives. The first…

Norris, John M.; Ortega, Lourdes – Applied Linguistics, 2009
In this article, we examine current practices in the measurement of syntactic complexity to illustrate the need for more organic and sustainable practices in the measurement of complexity, accuracy, and fluency (CAF) in second language production. Through in-depth review of examples drawn from research on instructed second language acquisition, we…

Duncan-Howell, Jennifer – British Journal of Educational Technology, 2009
Electronic communication is characteristically concerned with "the message" (eM), those who send them (S), and those who receive and read them (R). This relationship could be simplified into the equation eM = S + R. When this simple equation is applied to electronic communication, several elements are added that make this straightforward act of…

Barrot, Jessie S. – Reading & Writing Quarterly, 2018
The current study used a scale-based approach and complexity, accuracy, and fluency (CAF) analysis to comprehensively capture the effects of the sociocognitive-transformative approach on 2nd language (L2) learners' writing performance. The study involved 66 preuniversity intermediate L2 students from 4 different English classes. I randomly…

Tsupa, Yanina – Studies in Applied Linguistics & TESOL, 2021
Language proficiency is multi-componential in nature and, according to many SLA researchers and L2 practitioners, is best captured by the concepts of complexity, accuracy, and fluency (CAF). Two of the three studies reported in this paper adopted the Cognition Hypothesis (Robinson, 2003) as the means to address the question of whether increasing…

Plakans, Lia; Gebril, Atta; Bilki, Zeynep – Language Testing, 2019
The present study investigates integrated writing assessment performances with regard to the linguistic features of complexity, accuracy, and fluency (CAF). Given the increasing presence of integrated tasks in large-scale and classroom assessments, validity evidence is needed for the claim that their scores reflect targeted language abilities.…
