Informelle Testverfahren für bildungssprachliche Kompetenzen

  • Which testing formats are most appropriate for assessing academic language skills? Christian Krekeler addresses this question for informal language assessment in the classroom. In the first part of this chapter discrete items, isolated tests of writing, and integrated tests, three formats which are frequently used in standardised assessment, are investigated and their usefulness for classroom assessment, where diagnosis, achievement and learning are important test functions, is discussed. Because academic language use is cognitively demanding, it is argued that assessment of academic language skills should include authentic and complex tasks as well as subject specific content. The resulting tensions between complex, authentic and context sensitive tasks and the requirements of language assessment methodology are discussed in the second part of the chapter.
