Example text

Learners It goes without saying that learners have special rights when it comes to deciding the content of courses they are to undergo, ideally assessed before classes begin, at their inception, and as they proceed. Discussions of perceived and/or actual needs among teachers and students can also raise the level of awareness of both parties as to why they are doing what they are doing, lead them to reflect usefully on means and ends (Nunan, 1988, p. 5), constitute one component in learner training (Ellis & Sinclair, 1989), and especially in courses implementing a process syllabus (Breen, 1984), serve as a vehicle for language learning itself.

Such views are still controversial, yet the reality is that there is no such thing as abstract 'language proficiency', 'listening skill', 'reading ability', 'accuracy' or 'fluency'. Communicative ability is, by definition, 'task-related, context-related, specific, and local' (Jacoby & McNamara, 1999, p. , Jacobson, 1986; Swales, 1985). The case for task-based testing in needs analysis, in other words, is the same as that for task-based language teaching and assessment in general (see Long & Norris, 2000; Brown et al, 2002).

E. Bailey, 1982, pp. 181-217; Bernard, 1994, pp. 208-55; Reinharz, 1994, pp. 18-45; Spradley, 1979). Once unstructured interviews have been completed and the data from them analyzed, semi-structured or structured interviews may follow. As the names imply, these differ from unstructured interviews and from each other in the degree to which questions have been preformulated (and hence, the issues partly pre-determined) by the interviewer. In extreme cases, structured interviews are oral administrations of a questionnaire, then sometimes referred to as an interview schedule, as exemplified by some telephone interviews or by census takers who visit sample respondents' homes with a lengthy list of printed questions on a form which the interviewers fill out.
