The main rivals to the input or comprehension hypothesis are the skill-building and comprehensible output hypotheses. Studies claiming to show that the skill-building hypothesis is correct consist of studies of the impact of grammar instruction and error correction. These studies show only that instruction and correction have a modest impact on tests in which subjects are focused on form. Comprehensible output is rare, and there is no evidence supporting its efficacy.
