Abstract

The study we are conducting focuses on two morpho-lexical cloze tasks included in the Linguistic Certification Test of the Certificate in Italian for Speakers of Other Languages CELI of the Università per Stranieri di Perugia, B2 level, Summer session 2007 (CVCL, 2007a). Each cloze task is analyzed according to its various elements: the instructions, scoring, text, and individual items (namely the deletions the candidate is required to fill). The analysis of several critical issues allows us to begin to think through potential dangers of a cloze task, both in exam settings and in standard teaching practice.
