      Communicative tests, which cover the four language skills of listening, speaking, reading, and writing, are designed on the basis of communicative competence. According to Canale and Swain (), communicative competence involves linguistic competence  › 百度文库 › 基础教育. It is not insignificant that Carroll's () book was entitled “Testing Communicative Performance”, rather than “Testing Communicative Competence”, picking up the view first expressed by Morrow (, p. ) that ‘communicative tests’ will always involve performance.

      The aim of the present research is to examine the viability of the construct validity of the speaking modules of two internationally recognized language proficiency examinations, namely IELTS and TOEFL iBT. High-stake standardized tests play a crucial and decisive role in determining the future academic life of many people. Overall obtained scores of candidates are believed to reflect their Investigating the Construct Validity of Communicative Proficiency in TEP (Oral) at Level B. TEP (oral), a shortened name of Test of English Proficiency on Speaking, is a three-level English oral test that aims to assess the oral English proficiency of university students in those universities administered and supervised by Beijing Municipal

    Given the significant number of the studies conducted to explore construct validity, adopting various approaches, and the paucity of the studies that employed the experimental approach to validation, the current study was aimed at exploring the adequacy of the experimental approach to construct validation, drawing upon advertising literacy as the construct of the researchers’ :// Assistant Professor.

Palmer, Peter J.M. Groot, George A. Trosper Teachers of English to Speakers of Other Languages, The notion of communicative competence has received wide attention in the past few years, and numerous attempts have been made to define it.

Canale and Swain () have reviewed these attempts and have developed a framework which defines several hypothesized components of communicative competence and makes the implicit claim that tests of components of communicative competence THE CONSTRUCT VALIDATION OF THE FSI ORAL INTERVIEW The participants in a colloquium on the construct validation of oral language tests at the TESOL Convention provided invaluable comments and suggestions on every aspect of the research.

Construct validity is the overarching validity concept, while content and criterion-related (correlational) investigations can be used to investigate construct validity.

Following Messick, he included the consequences of test use Since the introduction of communicative language teaching (CLT) in the late s, there have been different definitions and interpretations of the communicative approach to second language (L2) instruction.

Not surprisingly, this has resulted in several misconceptions of CLT and how it is implemented in the L2 :// A multitrait-multimethod investigation into the construct validity of six tests of speaking and reading.

It is widely assumed that proficiency is the goal of language learning and teaching, as is suggested, for example, by the title of the Cambridge ‘Certificate of Proficiency in English’ (CPE), now known as ‘Cambridge English: Proficiency’, with its history of over a hundred years (Weir, Vidakovic, and Galaczi ).
