Abstract:

This report presents findings of a study conducted in Cameroon in May/June 1991, comparing the performance of three methods of testing for bilingualism. The three test methods under study are SLOPE (Second Language Oral Proficiency Evaluation), SRT (Sentence Repetition Test), and RPE (Reported Proficiency Evaluation). The nature of the relationships between these test methods is explored, and some recommendations and conclusions are given.

This report, compiled in 2001 by Marie C. South, draws from the following two earlier reports. The Cameroon Study: A Comparison of Second Language Proficiency Testing Methods by Deborah Hatfield, Carla Radloff, Ted Bergman, Marie South, Barrie Wetherill (presented at the International Language Assessment Conference, Horsleys Green, England, 1993), and Report on the Cameroon Trial of Bilingualism Assessment Methods, May–June 1991, by G. Barrie Wetherill and Marie C. South.
