Soureshjani, Kamal Heidari
Language Testing in Asia, v2 n2 Article 61 p61-72 May
The study was, in fact, an attempt to investigate any probable role of the cognitive style of language learners in their performance of two varieties of cloze test; that is, c-test and cloze-elide test. In other words, the study tried to see if being an FD or FI cause any significant difference in their performance on such two tests or not. To achieve such a purpose, 95 language learners were selected on the basis of availability sampling procedure and then their cognitive style was determined by using Group Embedded Figure Test (GEFT). After that, a series of c-test and cloze-elide tests were distributed among the two types of learners. In the end, the study revealed that there is a significant difference between the cognitive style of learners and their performance on the two intended tests. The study also showed that with regard to c-tests, FI learners have a better performance in comparison to FDs. However, regarding the cloze-elide test, FD learners outperform FIs.
