Note for Editors: please add to these lists at your discretion. Please also remove items from these lists if content is added (by you or whoever) so that this is kept up to date.

The following content needs to be added to SurveyWiki.

Recorded Text Tests

  • I think all the basic information on methodology is on the site (at least what was in the "Procedures of Language Survey" course). I'm sure someone who has actually conducted an RTT before could fill in some of the gaps and tie things together better.
  • expand introduction page
  • see if we can use Radloff 1993 on "Develop Post-RTT Questions" page
  • make more links between the pages
  • perhaps put the charts from some of the PDF documents into the SurveyWiki pages themselves
  • add references (or links, if possible) to other resources on each topic
  • add info about RTT-Rs
  • add info about RTT-Qs
  • add info about RTT-RAs
  • update recording info for the digital age
  • upload O’Leary, C. F. (1994). The role of Recorded Text Tests in Intelligibility Assessment and Language Program Decisions. Notes on Literature in Use and Language Programs, 48-72
  • upload Landweer, M. L. (2009). Use of the Recorded Text Test in Papua New Guinea: Some Initial Thoughts. unpublished paper.
