Hi List members,
 
I would be extremely grateful if you help solve the following controversies:
 
1. Qualitative words are not appropriate to describe a quantitative construct. 
2. Qualitative words are used to differentiate descriptors of levels of proficiency (although it is difficult to make distinctions between "some" and "a few", and "several" and "many"). 
3. Productive skills (Speaking and writing) are qualitatively described but quantitatively scored. How can qualitative words (e.g., fully, sufficiently, partially, minimally, largely, adequately, effectively, ...) get quantified? 
 
All the Best,
Shirin
