Tes AcEPT: Part III Grammar and Structure (Cloze Test)

Untuk soal nomor 16 – 25, pilihlah kata atau frasa pada pilihan A, B, C, dan D yang secara tepat melengkapi bagian-bagian yang kosong dalam teks bacaan.

A cloze test (also cloze deletion test) is an exercise, test, or assessment consisting of a portion of text with certain words removed (cloze text), where the participant is asked to replace the missing words. Cloze tests require the ability to understand context and vocabulary in order to identify the correct words or type of words that belong in the deleted passages of a text. This exercise is commonly administered for the assessment of native and second language learning and instruction.

Here’s an example, using a paragraph from Facebook’s privacy policy:

Site activity information. We keep {1}______ of some of the actions {2}______ take on Facebook, such as {3}______ connections (including joining a group {4}______ adding a friend), creating a {5}______ album, sending a gift, poking {6}______ user, indicating you “like” a {7}______, attending an event, or connecting {8}______ an application. In some cases {9}______ are also taking an action {10}______ you provide information or content {11}______ us. For example, if you {12}______ a video, in addition to {13}______ the actual content you uploaded, {14}______ might log the fact that {15}______ shared it.

Here are the missing words from the sample paragraph:

{1} track

{2} you

{3} adding

{4} or

{5} photo

{6} another

{7} post

{8} with

{9} you

{10} when

{11} to

{12} share

{13} storing

{14} we

{15} you

Exercise:

The strict version of the test requires that students provide the correct term for each blank, while a looser version has also been used that accepts “partially correct” answers, such as those that are the correct part of speech (verb, noun, pronoun, etc.). These answers indicate that students are learning the syntactic rules of language, but are as yet unable to translate these into a semantic comprehension of the text.

The answers for the spaces are as follows:

To jump to a scene, click __on__ Henry’s shirt pocket. The note pad appears. Then, click on the options tab. The options page appears. Then, click on the arrows on the right and left side of the scene pictured near the bottom of the page to flip through the scenes. When you find the scene you want, click the picture to go there.

Henry’s friend Ginger has a useful item that will help you pinpoint the number of jellybeans in Mr. Sherman’s jar. It is called the solution tester, and Ginger will let you use it whenever you would like. You have to find some clues to put into the solution tester before you use it. Ginger hangs out in Henry’s tree house, where she works on her own guesses for the Jellybean Contest. You can get to the tree house using Henry’s note pad. Go to the options page and click on the tree house.
