Title: A meta-analysis of second language cloze testing research

Abstract: Numerous studies have accumulated over the last forty years in which second language testing researchers have examined various cloze test characteristics, including what cloze tests are measuring, under what conditions, and for what type of learners. In order to understand the accumulated knowledge of cloze procedures in second language testing research, the following research questions were posed: 1. What are the test and learner characteristics in the primary cloze test studies to date? 2. How does the deletion pattern affect the reliability of the cloze results? 3. How do various scoring methods (exact, acceptable, and clozentropy) affect the reliability of the cloze tests? 4. What is the strength of relationship between acceptable and exact scoring methods?
