Abstract


The relevant objective of modern testing science is to create the system of linguo-didactic testing for migrants with health limitations, who constitute the most socially vulnerable category of foreigners. The authors of the article develop a model of such system, which uses the underlying principles of inclusive pedagogy. The article is based on the data of research, which was conducted using the expert evaluation method. The authors have developed recommendations on creating the system of linguo-didactic testing for migrants with health limitations. The linguo-didactic description of communicative competence was supplemented by the list of situations, topics for communication, relevant for the given category of test takers. The article proposes guidelines on adaptation of the test materials, presupposing their structural “adjustment” as well as correction of test tasks, assessment scale and rater’s charts. An adaptive form of presenting the test materials has also been developed. These changes will allow the system of linguo-didactic testing to become more flexible and provide equal rights and opportunities for all test takers, considering their specific needs and requirements.
