Third, these procedures will engender a higher level of “interest and motivation” in students.

As these elements of language could be mobilized into four modes of language use, four skills are identified: listening, speaking, reading and writing. So, it might be called language system-referenced tests. The assessment of test performance is based on correctness, with reliability and objectivity being of high importance. 2 The integrative approach The integrative approach in the early period of psycholinguistic-sociolinguistic testing is based on American educationalist John Oller’s (1979) “pragmatic expectancy grammar” and “Unitary Competence Hypothesis” (Baker 1989; McNamara 1997).
