Abstract:

This report presents a classification system for tasks and items in the SQT Written Component WC to help one decide whether that is the best means of testing. Ways of eliminating extraneous reading in WC are discussed. A new form of testing is described, combining the convenience of machine scoring with some advantages of hands-on testing. A unit training strategy for SQT preparation is derived from the performance-oriented model, and developments needed for implementation are discussed.
