Understanding and Developing Language Tests
Cyril J. Weir
This book attempts to develop a framework for constructing language tests which is consistent wirth a wide range of theoretical insights. The central aim is that it should provide teachers with the means of writing better tests. A three-part framework is suggested for use by teachers as a checklist in designing tests. The framework specifies the operations to be tested, the conditions under which the operations should be performed, and the criteria for assessment.
