MetadataShow full item record
This paper is a validation of two cloze procedures: Open-Ended and Multiple-Choice (henceforth OE and MC respectively). Open-Ended and Multiple-Choice tests on the same text were administered to 60 English majors in their 2nd year of university level, in Qatar. The subjects were divided randomly into two groups. The first group took Format 1, while the second group took Format 2. The order of the procedures were different on the two formats. Each subject attempted 40 multiple-choice items and 40 open-ended items. Statistics were calculated for the entire groups of 60 subjects as well as separately for the 30 subjects taking Format 1 and the other 30 taking Format 2.
