The pilot text test will determine which questions are the most effective and ought to be used in the final test. Care needs to be taken that each question is inserted after the section of text it refers to, so that the subjects do not become confused. Keeping a written record of track numbers and their contents will help you do this. Click on the headings below to learn the assembly process step by step.

Steps to Assemble Pilot Test

To preserve your original recording of the text, both as a backup and as the source for the LWC translation in your notebook, you will need a second MiniDisc (MD) recorder. This method for assembling the pilot test is the same as the cassette method. Follow these steps to assemble the test.

Use Track Change Tables

When you create a test disc to use in a village, the track assignments on that disc will be different from those on the source disc. A track change table is a good way to note the changes so that you know where to find each test and question set.

Create Scoring Chart

Scoring charts will help you remember to gather background information from each test subject and write it down. During test administration, it is helpful to see the questions written and the corresponding question track numbers listed for each of the reference tests. Each sheet also provides space for writing the test subjects' responses, scores, and answers to the post-RTT questions.
