Grammatical feedback in a computer-based editing task
An editing-test tests general language competence. The testee has to delete randomly inserted new words from an otherwise complete and perfect text. The project reported on is an evaluation of a series of lessons in Dutch as a second language of which explicit grammatical feedback is the main feature. The lessons consist of texts adapted as editing-tests, entirely administered and controlled by microcomputer. The feedback provided mainly refers to rules formulated in the pupils’ grammar, which is stored in the microcomputer. The paper provides information on the feedback – its contents and its instructional design – and, in particular, on the main results obtained.
