Abstract:Results based on four pilot tests administered over the span of two academic semesters suggested that: (a) the modified C-test procedure delivered enhanced linkage to the department's curriculum, and (b) psychometric qualities such as reliability of test scores were not materially affected by the modifications. The study concluded that a modified C-test procedure might be an effective language testing procedure that is more compatible with current validity theory than the original C-test procedure.
