Departmental Bulletin Paper Analysis of placement tests for the assessment of reading ability : text topics, test items and test takers' performance

中村, 優治  ,  Murray, Adam

Locally based placement tests often focus on specific skills that a program deems important and which needs to be assessed. The purpose of the present study is two-fold : 1) to discuss important issues concerning second language reading assessment in academic settings, and 2) to analyze the reading section of an in-house university placement test. The two issues will be dealt with by examining the inhouse placement test results and several readability statistics.
