The purposes of this research were 1) to develop and examine the quality of Thai language for communication diagnostic tests for teacher students; and 2) to diagnosis of teacher students’ Thai language for communication with G-DINA MODEL. The sample consisted of 566 teacher students (three and four-year curriculum) using multistage random sampling. Research Instruments were Thai language for communication diagnostic tests. Data were analyzed by descriptive statistics, frequency, percentage, and the G-DINA MODEL analysis. The research results can be summarized as follows:
1. Thai language for communication diagnostic tests for teacher students was developed with 59 items, 5 multiple-choice questions in accordance with Teacher's Council of Thailand. The Thai language for communication diagnostic had Content validity (IOC = 0.60-1.00), Difficulty (P = 0.21-0.79), Discrimination (r = 0.201-0.567), and Reliability (KR-20 = 0.734) through the criteria. The diagnostic test was classified into four competencies, namely, listening ability with 5 attributes (16 items), speaking ability with 8 attributes, (15 items), reading ability with 3 attributes (13 items) and writing ability with 5 attributes (15 items).
2. The G-DINA Model was in accordance with all four competency criteria. The model was consistent with the empirical data score and the results of the diagnostic validity analysis revealed that the developed diagnostic test was accurate and met the required criteria. And most of sub-traits have a Guessing Parameter and a Slipping Parameter through a low RMSEA parameter which can diagnose teacher students’ Thai language for communication with their competencies classified and in the latent class of the test takers with the competencies in various areas according to the characteristics.
