Published Online: Nov 01, 2019
The purpose of this article is to analyze major attributes and features of different question (or item) types used in Seoul National University Language Tests (SNULT) as a way to verify the validity of these tests. A total of 50 reading and listening items each were selected from SNULT German vol. 2. (in press) and SNULT Japanese vol. 2. (2019) and then analyzed by using Bachman’s (1990) Test Method Facets framework. Results of analysis have shown that the reading and listening sections of both tests are so constructed that each question has not only various degrees of difficulties, but also focuses on measuring test taker’s ability to grasp main ideas, to understand details, and to make plausible inferences. These findings suggest that both SNULT German and Japanese tests are equipped with appropriate formats and contents for testing test-takers’ foreign language competence and therefore seen to be valid foreign language testing tools.
