questions with multiple-choice answers are included in the dichotomous group because only one of the answers given is right.
Table 4 below also shows a summary of errors counts in the multiple-choice and cloze tests
in the three levels.
They found that FI learners performed better on discrete-point and cloze tests
As regards the three tests, it was assumed that the Cloze test
is ordinarily more challenging than the other two: gap-filling probably requires higher competence, both grammatical and pragmatic.
Native and Non-Native Speaker Performance on Cloze Tests
The cloze test
results were used in order to ascertain that the two groups of participants were at the same level of proficiency (see Table 1).
For the conceptualization of the content; cloze tests
error correction, formal/informal words, sentence completion and notes expansion exercises are seen to be essential to be emphasized in the syllabus.
These results indicate the efficacy of QuickSmart as an intervention that supports students to improve automaticity in basic academic skills such as word recognition and sentence-level cloze tests
It is fairly easy to implement discrete-point grammar and vocabulary tests using radio buttons to create multiple choice items, cloze tests
and C-tests with textfields for brief-response items, discourse completion tests or essays with large text areas, as well as reading comprehension tests with frames, where one frame displays the text and the other frame displays multiple-choice or brief-response questions.
Factor validity of cloze tests
as measures of reading comprehension ability.
For example, without the classroom observation data the patterns of errors in the cloze tests
might have suggested the need for more explicit teaching of comprehension strategies (Pressley, 2002).
This stage provides the learner with an opportunity to practice the same target items and structures through a range of activities; typical exercise formats include multiple choice, word-ordering, cloze tests
, and substitution drills.
