It is my purpose, therefore, to present a discussion, a few examples, and an evaluation of the principal types of tests which are in the concern and domain of the classroom teacher. It is important that the discussion be concerned here with the field of modern languages, and more specifically Spanish, for that is the field for which this investigator is prepared, Therefore, while the application of the findings is generally applicable to other modern languages, it is here restricted to Spanish.

The need for an investigation into the types of tests which a teacher might use or construct arises out of the fact that very few such investigations in the field of Spanish have ever been made in the past in any extensive manner. Many investigators have skirted the field lightly, but none has conducted a special study. This investigation is intended to supplement thoss already made and bring many of them up-to-date.
