Usually, such tests offer a checklist of features for the administrator often the teacher to use in pinpointing difficulties. A writing diagnostic would elicit'a writing sample from students that would allow the teacher to identify those rhetorical and linguistic features on which the course needed to focus special attention.
Any placement test that offers information beyond simply designating a course level may also serve diagnostic purposes. There is also a fine line of difference between a diagnostic test and a general achievement test. Achievement tests analyze the extent to which students have acquired language features that have already been taught; diagnostic tests should elicit information on what students need to work on in the future.
A typical diagnostic test of oral production was created by Clifford Prator to accompany a manual of English pronunciation. Test-takers are directed to read a ISO-word passage while they are tape-recorded. The test administrator then refers to an. The main' categories include 1. An example of subcategories is shown in this list for the first category stress and rhythm : a. Thts infomlation can help teachers make decisions about awects of English phonology on which to focus.
This same information can help a student become aware of errors and encourage the adoption of appropriate compensatory strategies. Achievement Tests An achievement test is related directly to classroom lessons, units, or even a total curriculum. Achievement tests are or should be limited to particular material addressed in a curriculum within a particular time frame and are offered after a course haS focused on the objectives in question. Achievement tests are often summative because they are administered at the end of a unit dr term of study.
They also play an important formative role. This washback contributes to the formative nature of such tests. Here is the outline for a midterm examination offered at the high-intermediate level of an intensive English program in the United States. The course focus is on academic reading and writing; the structure of the course and its objectives may be implied from the sections of the test. Midterm examination outline, high-intermediate Section A.

Readi ng comprehension 2 one-paragraph passages : four short-answer items for each Section D. It is unlikely that you would be asked to design an aptitude test or a proficiency test, but for the purposes of interpreting those tests, it is important that you understand their nature. However, your opportunities to design placement, diagnostic, and achievement tests-especially the latter-will be plentiful.
In the remainder of this chapter, we will explore the four remaining questions posed at the outset, and the focus will be on equipping you with the tools you need to create such classroom-oriented tests. You may think that every test you devise must be a wonderfully innovative instrument that will gamer the accolades of your colleagues and the admiration of your students.
Not so. First, new and innovative testing formats take a lot of effort to design and a long time to refme through trial and error. Your best tack as a new teacher is to work within the guidelines of accepted, known, traditional testing techniques. In that spirit, then, let us consider some practical steps in constructing classroom tests. Assessing Clear, Unambiguous Objectives In addition to knowing the purpose of the test you're creating, you need to know as specifically as possible what it is you want to test.
This is no way to approach a test. In other words, e. Thus, an objective that states "Students 'will. Your first task in designing a test, then, is to determine appropriate objectives. If you're a little less fortunate, you may have to go back through a unit and formulate them yourself. Notice that each objective is stated in terms of the performance elicited and the target linguistiC domain.
Reading skills simple essay or story Students will 7. Writing skills simple essay or story Students wi II 8. You may find, in reviewing the objectives of a unit or a course, that you cannot possibly test each one. Drawing Up Test Specifications Test specifications for classroom use can be a simple and practical outline of your test. For large-scale standardized tests [see Chapter 4] that are intended to be widely distributed and therefore are broadly generalized, test specifications are much more formal and detailed.
In the unit discussed above, your specifications will simply comprise a a broad outline of the test, b what skills you will test, and c what the items will look like. Let's look at the frrst two in relation to the midterm unit assessment already referred to above. Because of the constraints of your curriculum, your unit test must take no more than 30 minutes.
Since you have the luxury of teaching a small class only 12 students! You can therefore test oral production objectives directly at that time. You determine that the minute test will be divided equally in time among listening, reading, and writing. The next and potentially more complex choices involve the item types and tasks to use in this test. It is surprising that there are a limited number of modes of eliciting responses that is, prompting and of responding on tests of any kind. Consider the options: the test prompt can be oral student listens or written student reads , and the student can respond orally or in writing.
It's that simple. But some complexity is added when you realize that the types of prompts in each case vary widely, and within each response mode, of course, there are a number of options, all of which are depicted in Figure 3. Figure 3. Elicitation and response modes in test cons! For example, it is unlikely that directions would be read aloud, nor would spelling a word be matched with a monologue. A modicum of intuition will eli.
Notice that three of the-six. This decision may be based on the time you devoted to these objectives, but more likely on the feasibility of testing that objective or simply on the fmite number of minutes available to administer the test.

Notice, too, that objectives 4 and 8 are not assessed. Finally, notice that this unit was mainly focused on listening and speaking, yet 20 minutes of the minute test is devoted to reading and writing tasks. Is this an appropriate decision? One more test spec that needs to be included is a plan for scoring and assigning relative weight to each section and each item within.
This issue will be addressed later in this chapter when we look at scoring, grading, and feedback. Devising Test Tasks Your oral interview comes frrst, and so you draft questions to conform to the accepted pattern of oral interviews see Chapter 7 for information on constructing oral interviews. Oral interview format A. Warm-up: questions and comments B. Level-check questions objectives 3, 5, and 6 1. Tell me about what you did last weekend.
Tell me about an interesting trip you took in the last year. How did you like the TV show we saw this week? Probe objectives 5, 6 1. What is your opinion about? How do you feel about? Wind-down: comments and reassurance You are now ready to draft other test items. The sitcom depicted a loud,noisy party with lots of small talk. Let's say your first draft of items produces the following possibilities within each section: Test items, first draft Listening, part a.
Choose the sentence on your test page that is closest in meaning to the sentence you heard. Voice: They sure made a mess at that party, didn't they? They didn't make a mess, did they? They did make a mess, didn't they? Listening, part b. Choose the sentence on your test page that is the best answer to the question.
Voice: Where did George go atter the party last night? Yes, he did. Because he was tired. To Elaine's place for another party. He went home around eleven o'clock. Reading sample items Directions: fill in the correct tense of the verb in parentheses that should go in each blank. And then right away lightning strike right outside their house! Writing Directions: Write a paragraph about what you liked or didn't like about one of the characters at the party in the TV sitcom we saw. As you can see, these items are quite traditional. You might self-critically admit that the format of some of the items is contrived, thus lowering the level of authenticity.
All four skills are represented, and the tasks are varied within the 30 minutes of the test. Are the directions to each section absolutely clear? Is there an example item for each section? Does each item measure a specified objective? Is each item stated in clear, simple language? See below for a primer on creating effective distractors. Is the difficulty of each item appropriate for your students?
Is the language of each item sufficiently authentic? Do the sum of the items and the test as a whole adequately reflect the learning objectives? In the current example that we have been analyzing, your revising process is likely to result in at least four changes or additions: 1.
In both interview and writing sections, you recognize that a scoring rubric will be essential. In the listening section, part b, you intend choice "c" as the correct answer, but you realize that choice "d" is also acceptable. You shorten it to "d. Around eleven o'clock. In the writing prompt, you can see how some students would not use the words so or because, which were in your objectives, so you reword the prompt: "Name one of the characters at the party in the TV sitcom we saw.
Then, use the word so at least once and the word because at least once to tell why you liked or didn't like that person. But in our daily classroom teaching, the tryout phase is almost impossible. Alternatively, you could enlist the aid of a colleague to look over your test. Go through each set of directions and all items slowly and deliberately. Often we underestimate the time students will need to complete a test. If the test should be shortened or lengthened, make the. Make sure your test is neat and -uncluttered on the page, reflecting all the care and precision you have put into its construction.
If there is an audio component, as there is in our hypothetical test, make sure that the sCript is clear, that,your,voice ,and any other voices are :clear, and that the audio equipment is in working order before starting the test. This was a bold step to take. MUltiple-choice items, which may appear to be the Simplest kind of item to construct, are extremely difficult to design correctly.
Hughes , pp. The two prinCiples that stand out L. But is the preparation phase worth the effort? Sometimes it is, but you might spend even more time designing such items than you save in grading the test. First, a,primer on terminology. Other receptive item types include true-false questions and matching lists. In the discussion here, the guidelines apply primarily to multiple-choice item types and not necessarily to other receptive types. Brown, , pp. Design each item to measure a specific objective. Consider this item introduced, and then revised, in the sample test above: Multiple-choice item, revised Voice: Where did George go after the party last night?
The specific objective being tested here is comprehension of wh-questions. Distractors b and d , as well as the' key item c , test comprehension of the meaning of where as opposed to why and when. The objective has been directly addressed. Multiple-choice item, flawed Excuse me, do you know? But what does distractor c actually measure? Brown , p.
Can you think of a better distractor for c that would focus more clearly on the objective? State both stem and options as simply and directly as possible. We are sometimes tempted to make multiple-choice items too wordy. A good rule of thumb is to get directly to the point.
Here's an example. Multiple-choice cloze item, flawed My eyesight has really been deteriorating lately. I wonder if I need glasses. But if you simply want a student to identify the type of medical professional who deals with eyesight issues1 those sentences are superfluous. Moreover, by lengthening the stem, you have introduced a potentially. Another rule of succinctness is to remove needless redundancy from your options.
In the followmglfem, which were is repeated in all three options. It should be placed in the stem to keep the item as succinct as possible. Make certain that the intended answer is clearly the only correct one. In the proposed unit test described earlIer, the following item appeared in the original draft: Multiple-choice item, flawed Voice: Where did George go after the party last night?
A quick consideration of the distractor d reveals that it is a plausible answer, along with the intended key, c. Eliminating unintended possible answers is often the most difficult problem of designing multiple--choice items. Use item indices to accept, discard, or revise items. Although measuring these factors on classroom tests would be useful, you probably will have neither the time nor the expertise to do this for every classroom test you create, especially one-time tests.
Itemfacility or IF is the extent to which an item is easy or difficult for the proposed group of test-takers. The answer is that an item that is too easy say 99 percent of respondents get it right or too difficult 99 percent get it wrong really does nothing to separate high-ability and low-ability test-takers. There is no absolute IF value that must be met to determine if an item should be included in the test as is, modified, or thrown out, but appropriate test items will generally have IFs that range between. Two good reasons for occasionally including a very easy item.
And very difficult items can provide a challenge to the highest-ability students. An item on which high-ability students who did well in the test and low-ability students who didn't score equally well would have poor ID because it did not discriminate between the two groups. Suppose your class of 30 students has taken a test. Once you have calculated final scores for all 30 students, divide them roughly into thirds-that is, create three rank-ordered ability groups including the top 10 scores, the middle 10, and the lowest One clear, practical use for ID indices is to select items from a test bank that includes more items than you need.
You might decide to discard or improve some items with lower ID because you know they won't be as powerful an indicator of success on YOlir test. Your best calculated hunches may provide sufficient support for retaining, revising, and discarding proposed items. But if you are constructing 'a large-scale test, or one that will be administered multiple times, these indices are important factors. For more information on IRT; see Bachman, ,1pp.
Distractor effu:iency is one more important measure of a multiple-choice item's value in a test, and one that is related to item discrimination. Consider the following. No mathematical formula is needed to tell you that this item successfully attracts seven of the ten high-ability students toward the correct response, while only tw9 of the low-ability students get this one right. As shown above, its ID is. No one picked it, and therefore it probably has, P9. Why are good students choosing this one? Your scoring plan reflects the relative weight that you place on each section and items in each section.
The integrated-skills class that we have been using as an example focuses on listening and speaking skills with some attention to reading and writing. Three of your nine objectives target reading and writing skills. How do you assign SCOling to the various components of this test?
Because oral production. You consider the listen! That leaves 20 percent for the writi,!! Again, to achieve the correct weight for writing, you will double each score and add them, so the possible total is 20 points. Chapters 4 and 9 will deal in depth with scoring and assessiflg writing performance. After administering the test once, you may decide to shift some of these weights or to make other changes. You will then have valuable information about how easy or difficult the test was, about whether the time limit was reasonable, about your students' affective reaction to it, and about their general performance.
Finally, you will have an intuitive judgment about whether this test correctly assessed your students. Take note of these impressions, however nonempirical they may be, and use them for revising the test in another term. Grading Your first thought might be that assigning grades to student performance on this test would be easy: just give an "A" for percent, a "B" for percent, and ,so on. Not so fast! Grading is such a thorny issue that all of Chapter 11 is devoted to the topic. For the time being, then, we will set aside issues that deal with grading this test in particular, in favor of the comprehensive treatment of grading in Chapter You might choose to return the test to,:the student with one of, or a combination of, any of the possibilities below: 1.
They offer the student only a modest sense ofwhere that student stands and a vague idea of overall performance, but the feedback they present does not become washback. Washback "-"-,,,- is achieved '.. Of course, time and the logistics of large classes may not permit 5d and 6d, which for many teachers may be going above and beyond expectations for a test like this.
Options 6 and 7, however, are clearly viable possibilities that solve some of the practicality issues that are so important in teachers' busy schedules. This five-part template can serve as a pattern as you design classroom tests. You will also assess the pros and cons of what we've been calling standards-based assessment, including its social and political consequenc.
You will consider an array of possibilities of what has come to be called "alternative" assessment Chapter 10 , only because portfolios, conferences, journals, self- and peer-assessments are not always comfortably categorized among more traditional forms of assessment. And fmally Chapter 11 you will take a long, hard look at the dilemmas of grading students. Aptitude tests propose to predict one's performance in a language course.
Review the rationale supporting such testing, and then summarize the controversy surrounding aptitude tests. What can you say about the validity and the ethics of aptitude testing? What kinds of items should be used? How would you sample among a number of possible objectives? G Look again at the discussion of objectives page In a small group, discuss the following scenario: In the case that a teacher is faced with more objectives than are possible to sample in a test, draw up a set of guidelines for choosing which objectives to include on the test and which ones to exclude.
You might start with considering the issue. Are there other modes of elicitation that could be included in such a chart? Justify your additions with an example of each. G Select a language class in your immediate environment for the following project: In small groups, design an achievement test for a segment of the course preferably a unit for which there is no current test or for wpjch the present test is inadequate. When it is completed, present your assessment project to the rest of the class.
Calculate the item facility IF and item discrimination ID index for selected items. If there are no data for an existing test, select some items on the test and analyze the structure of those items in a distractor analysis to determine if they have a any bad distractors, b any bad stems, or c more than one potentially correct answer. Review the practicality of each and determine the extent to which practicality principally, more time expended is justifiably sacrificed in order to offer better washback to learners.
Cognitive abilities in foreign language aptitude: Then and now. In Thomas S. Stansfield Eds. Testing in language programs. Assessment of student achievement. Sixth Edition. Boston: Allyn and Bacon. This widely used general. In particular, Chapters 3, 4, 5, and 6 describe detailed steps for designing tests and writing multiple-choice, true-false, and short-answer items. For almost a century, schools, universities, businesses, and governments have looked to standardized measures for economical, reliable, and valid assessments of those who would enter, continue in, or exit their institutions.
Proponents of these large-scale instruments make strong claims for their usefulness when great numbers of people must be measured quickly and effectively. The rush to carry out standardized testing in every walk of life has not gone unchecked. Some psychometricians have stood up in recent years to caution the public against reading too much into tests that require what may be a narrow band of specialized intelligence Sternberg, ; Gardner, ; Kooo, So it is important for you to understand what.
We can learn a great deal about many learners and their competencies through standardized forms of assessment. But some of those learners and some of those objectives may not be adequately measured by a sit-down, timed, multiple-choice format that is likely to be decontextualized. A standardized test presupposes certain standard objectives, or criteria, that are held constant across one form of the test to another. The criteria in large-scale standardized tests are designed to ap'ply to a broad band of competencies that are usually not exclusive to one particular curriculum.
A good standardized test is the '. It dictates standard procedures for administration. And finally, it is' typical of a norm-referenced test, the goal of which is to place test-takers on a continuum across a range of scores and to differentiate test-takers by their relative ranking. Most elementary and secondary schools in the United States have standardized achievement tests to measure children's mastery of the standards or competencies that have been prescribed for specified grade levels.
While it is true that many standardized tests conform to a multiple-choice format, by no means is multiple-choice a prerequisite characteristic. It so happens that a multiple-chOice format provides the test producer with an "objective" means for determining correct and incorrect responses, and therefore is the preferred mode for large-scale tests.
Administration to large groups can be accomplished within reasonable time limits. And, for better or for worse, there is often an air of face validity to such authoritative-looking instruments. Disadvantages center largely on the in..! This instrunrent had the appearance and face validity of a good test when in reality it had no -content Validity whatsoever. For example, r before , the TOEFL included neither a written nor an oral production section, yet statistics showed a reasonably strong correspondence between performance on the TOEFL and a student's written and-to a lesser extent-oral production.
Those who use standardized tests need to acknowledge both the advantages and limitations of indirect testing. In the pre.. Yet the construct validation statistics that offer that support never offer a percent probability of the relationship, leaving room for some possibility that the indirect test is not valid for its targeted use. A more serious isslle lies in the assumption alluded to above that standardized tests correctly assess all learners equally well.
Here is a non-language example. What about those few who do not fit the model? That small minority of drivers could endanger the lives of the majority, and is that a risk worth taking?
Motor vehicle registration departments in the United States seem to think so, and thus avoid the high cost of behind-the-wheel driving tests. Are you willing to rely on a standardized test result in the case of all the learners in your class? Of an applicant to your institution, or of a potential degre,e candidate exiting your program? These questions will be addressed more fully in Chapter 5, but for the moment, think carefully about what has come to be known. The widespread acceptance, and sometime misuse, of this gate-keeping role of the testing industry has created a political, educational, and moral maelstrom.
How are standardized tests developed? Where do test tasks and items come from? How are they evaluated? Who selects items and their arrangement in a test? H ow do such items and tests- achieve consequential validity? Who sets norms and cut.. Are security add confidentiality an issue? Are cultural and racial biases an issue in test development? All these questions typify those that you might pose in an attempt to understand the process of test 'development. The second. As we look at the steps, one by one, you will see patterns that are consistent with those outlined in the previous two chapters.
Determine ihe purpose and objectives of the test. Most standardized tests are expected to provide high practicality in administration and scoring without unduly compromising validity. The initial outlay of time and money for such a test is Significant, but the test would be used repeatedly. Let's look at the three tests. More specifically, the TOEFL is designed to help institutions of higher learning make "valid decisions concerning English language profiCiency lin terms of lthelr] own requirements" p. Various cut-off scores apply, but most institutions require scores from to paper-based or from to computer-based in order to consider students for admission.
B The ESLP'T, referred to in Chapter 3, is designed to place already admitted students at San Francisco State University in an appropriate course in academic writing, with the secondary goal of placing students into courses in oral production and grammar-editing. While the test's primary purpose is to make placements, another desirable objective is to provide teachers with some diagnostic information about their students on the first day or two of class.
C The GE'f,another test designed at SFSU, is given to prospective graduate students-both native and non-native speakers-in all disciplines to determine whether their writing ability is sufficient to permit them to enter graduate-level courses in their programs. It is offered at the beginning of each term. Students who fail or marginally pass the GET are technically ineligible to take graduate courses in their field. Instead, they may elect to take a course in graduate-level writing of research papers. A pass in that course is equivalent to passing the GET.
As you can see, the objectives of each of these tests are specific. The content of each test must be designed to accomplish those particular ends. Design test specifications. Now comes the hard part. This stage of laying the foundation stones can occupy weeks, months, or even years of effort. Let's look at the three tests again.
Reducing such a complex process to a set of simple steps runs the risk of gross overgeneralization, but here is an idea of how a TOEFL is created. The latter phrase is more conSistent, they argue, with our understanding that the specific components of language ability must be assessed separately.
Most current views accept the ability argument and therefore strive to specify and assess the many components of language.
For the ,purposes of consistency in this book, the term proficiency will nevertheless be retained, with the above caveat. After breaking language competence down into subsets of listening, speaking, reading, and writing, ea. Oral production tests can be tests of overall conversational fluency or pronunciation of a particular subset of phonolOgy, and can take the form of imitation, structured responses, or free responses.
Listening comprehension tests can concentrate on a particular feature of language or on overalllistenins for general meaning. Writing-tests can take on an open-ended form with free composition, or be structured to elicit anything from correct spelling to discourse-level competence. Are you overwhelmed yet? From the sea of potential performance modes that could be sampled in a test, the developer must select a subset on some systematic basis. To make a very long story short and leaving out numerous controversies , the TOEFL had for many years included three types of performance in its organizationai specifications: listening.
In doing so, some face validity and content validity were improved along with, of course, a significant increase in administrative expense! Each of these four major sections is capsulized in the box below adapted from. Such descriptions are not, strictly speaking, specifications, which are kept confidential by ETS. The listening section measures the examinee's ability to understand English as it is spoken in North. Conversational, features of the language are. The stimulus. The test developers have taken advantage of the multimedia capability of the computer by using photos and graphics to create context and support the content of the lectures, producing stimuli that more closely approximate Ureal-world" situations in which people do more than just listen to voices.
The language tested is formal rather than conversational. Reading Section. Examinees read a variety of short passages on academic subjects and answer several questions about each passage. This section is not computer-adaptive, so'examinees can skip questions and return to previous questions.
In all cases, the questions can be answered by reading and understanding the passages. This section consists of 1 traditional multiple-choice questions, 2 questions that require examinees to click on a word, phrase, sentence, or paragraph to answer, and 3 questions that ask examinees to "insert a sentence" where it fits best.
Writing Section. The rating scale for scoring the essay, ranging from 0 to 6, is virtua. A score of 0 is given to papers that are blank, simply copy the topic, are written ina language other than English, consist only of random keystroke characters, or are written on a topic different from the one assigned. Each essay is rated independently by two trained, certified readers. Neither reader knows the rating assigned by the other.
B The designing of the test specs for the ESLPT was a somewhat simpler task because the purpose is placement and the construct validation of the test consisted of an examination of the content of the ESL courses. In fact, in a recent revisiof. The major issue centered on designing practical and reliable tasks and item response formats. Having established the importance of designingESLPT tasks that simulated classroom tasks used in the courses, the designers ultima,tely specified two writing production tasks one a response to an essay that students read, and the other a summary of another essay and one multiple-choice grammar-editing task.
These specific. C Specifications for the GET arose out of the perceived need to provide a threshold of acceptable writing ability for all prospective graduate students at SFSU, both native and non-native speakers of English. The specifications for the GET are the skills of writing grammatically and rhetorically acceptable prose on a topic of some interest, with clearly produced organization of ideas and logical development.
The GET is a direct test of writing ability in which test-takers must, in a two-hour time period, write an essay on a given topic. Once specifications for a standardized test have been stipulated, the sometimes never-ending task of designing, selecting, and arranging items beginS. Let's look at the! Items are then designed by a team who select and adapt items solicited from a bank. Probes for the reading section, for example, are usually excerpts from authentic general or academic reading that are edited for linguistic difficulty, culture bias, or other topic biases.
Consider the following sample of a reading selection and ten items based on it, from a practice TOEFL Phillips, ,pp. They stole from other ships and. A hundred of the crew members went down with the ship, along with its treasure of coins, gold, silver, and jewels. The treasure on board had an estimated value, on today's market, of more than million dollars. The remains of the Whidah were discovered in by Barry Clifford, who had spent years of painstaking research and tireless searching, only finally to locate the ship about yards from shore.
A considerable amount of treasure from the centuries-old ship has been recovered from its watery grave, but there is clearly still a lot more out there. Just as a reminder of what the waters off the coast have been protecting for hundreds of years, occasional pieces of gold, or silver, or jewels still wash up on the beaches, and lucky beach-goers find pieces of the treasure.
