Abstract

A study of a spelling test dealing with vocabulary and concord mistakes. After various experiments, the final test was made up of 16 sentences containing numerous spelling mistakes of a different degree of difficulty. The subject's task was to rewrite the sentences with the correct spelling. The instructions for application and the technique of correction were reported. Over 1.100 subjects belonging to different professional groups were submitted to the test. The results were examined with reference to the basic instruction level. The correlation between this test and the B. V. OR-18 test dealing only with vocabulary mistakes was calculated for the whole group of subjects ; it is as high as .84. A table makes it possible to work out a global mark for spelling (ranging from 0 to 15), from the results obtained in the two tests.
