Abstract

This article probes validity issues of computer-assisted strategy assessment (CASA) in second-language (L2) acquisition research. Using two CASA studies, it reviews the metacognitive and cognitive strategies. It discusses trait-oriented and interactionist approaches to the concept of strategy, and examines validity by focusing on "advance preparation" and "resourcing," examples of trait-oriented and interactionist strategies, respectively. It suggests additional forms of validity evidence and describes applications of CASA as well as problems associated with this form of measurement.
