2021大學學測英文科試題出處及簡評    蘇正隆

今年大學學測英文科試題取材多元,涵蓋動物保護與環境、奇人軼事 (公園巡守員遭雷擊)、地球暖化、運動與健康、生質能源、富蘭克林發明的玻璃琴、護照的歷史等,命題強調「情境化」,「素養導向」, 而不是單純考文法知識和孤立的片語、詞彙。大考中心表示希望藉此引導考生以英文為工具來獲取知識。我也請書林的美籍編輯和英國顧問仔細檢視試題,他們都認爲與往年相比,品質提升很多。其中英國顧問過去四五年來曾協助我檢視學測、指考、統測英文科試題,他的評論如下:

Hi Jerome,
The exam this year is much improved; errors are infrequent and minor. Perhaps your article could emphasize the progress made?
Thanks, 
Ian
