Comparative Validity of Three English Oral Language Proficiency Tests.
Schrank, Fredrick A.; And Others
Bilingual Research Journal, v20 n1 p55-68 Win 1996
Examines three English oral language proficiency tests in terms of whether the tests measure basic interpersonal communication skills or cognitive-academic language proficiency. Suggests that oral language proficiency tests should be academic in nature if their purpose is to determine whether language-minority students can meet the demands of monolingual instruction in English.
