Discourse Approaches to Oral Language Assessment.
Young, Richard F.
Annual Review of Applied Linguistics, v22 p243-62 2002
Looks at a sample conversation and examines layers of interpretation that different academic traditions have constructed to interpret it. Reviews studies that have compared the discourse of oral interaction in assessment with oral discourse in contexts outside the assessment. Discusses studies that related ways of speaking to cultural values of communities to understand cultural miscommunication that occurs in assessment. (Author/VWL)
