Speaking Test 2: Testing Russian Grammar in Beginner Learners' Speech (Comics type picture panels)
This test is designed to assess the accuracy of the production of Russian case endings in learners’ unprepared speech. It uses comics type panels, based on a famous Russian novel to elicit structures that require the use of Prepositional an Accusative cases
This test replicates Speaking Test 1, but is based on a different piece of Russian literature, a play poem by Russian writer and actor Leonid Filatov, written in 1985, called the Tale of Fedot the Strelets (Russian: Сказка про Федота-стрельца, удалого молодца). This test was successfully used for delayed testing with 34 Russian beginner learners after 20 classroom contact hours. The storyline of the poem is based on Russian folk tales, making this test more appropriate for younger learners. The same as Speaking Test 1, this test is aimed at Prepositional and Accusative cases. Thus, one of these tests can be used as a practice tool, while the other – as a testing tool with the same group.
