[Diagnosing reading in a second or foreign language - theoretical and practical starting points of the DIALUKI project] AFinLa-e3 (2011). [AFinLa-e open access yearbook 3(2011)]

The article deals with the diagnosis of reading in a second or foreign language (L2)and the role of diagnostic assessment in language testing and in applied linguistics. We discuss new opening in diagnosing L2 and focus on the new research project DIALUKI - Diagnosing reading and writing in a second or foreign language, which is a multi-disciplinary, international 4-year (2010-2013) study into diagnosing reading and writing. It seeks to identify the cognitive, affective and linguistic features which predict a learner´s strengths and weaknesses in those areas. We discuss theories of reading that inform our attempts to diagnose L1 and L2 reading abilities and describe in some detail how comprehension and different cognitive processes related to reading have been operationalised in the first sub-study of DIALUKI, in which almost 900 learners of English as FL and Finnish as L2, aged 10-18, are studied cross-sectionally in Finland.

Keywords: diagnostic assessment, reading in L2

Bettoni (Eds.), EUROSLA Yearbook. Annual conference of the European Second Language Association (Vol. 11, pp. 30–52). Amsterdam, John Benjamins.

Language testing researchers have recently shown interest in diagnostic testing. However, diagnostic testing requires a better understanding of language abilities at a less general lever than has been normal in language testing, and this has posed challenges to testers to define their diagnostic contructs both thoretically and operationally.

In theory, second language acquisition (SLA) shold be able to offer insights into the construct of reading in a second or foreign language (S/FL), and testing ought to be able to base diagnostic test of S/FL reading on theoretical insights from SLA. It is, however, unclear whether this happens in practice. In this paper we examine the potential synergy between second language acquisition and second and foreign language testing, and we report on progress in three inter-related research projects into S/FL reading.
