概要 The Vocabulary Levels Test (VLT) (Nation, 1983; 1990) is widely used in language education research for estimating vocabulary sizes of ESL/EFL students (Nation, 2001; Beglar 1999; Schmitt, D & Clapham..., C., 2001; Read, 2000). The VLT is used to correlate vocabulary size with other linguistic research, as part of a test battery in placement tests, to gauge the appropriate range of granted readers for extensive reading, to gauge vocabulary size for materials development and other pedagogical purposes, Traditionally the levels have been at the 2000, 3000, 5000, 10,000 and the University Word Level. The 2000 word level tests include items from the 1-1,000 and the 1,001-2,000 level; however, in an EFL contexts or with lower ability students there may be a need to assess more precisely below the 2,000 word level. A study by Kudo (2001) makes the point identified by many teaching beginning or low language ability students that "a new test that includes a lower level such as the 1,000-word level should be developed... However, this lower level test does not yet exist, This is surprising because it is not known how much vocabulary relatively low-level EFL learners have actually learned." The Westrik 1000-word level test has been designed to meet this need. Used with other frequency-based levels tests such as those by Beglar & Hunt (1999) or by Schmitt (2000) and Schmitt, Schmitt, and Clapham (2001) more detailed and accurate knowledge of a low English language ability student can be measured. In this paper, the development, analysis and validity of this 1,000 word level test are explained.続きを見る
