Language Testing
February 2017

We are well into the new year and we're now seeing details of the year's conferences slowly appearing. I'll add links below as more information becomes available. I'm also starting to do the groundwork for some of the new podcasts and features, so watch out for the 'coming soon' information below. In the meantime, if you haven't already seen it you can still catch my 2016 Language Testing Review. One issue that I'm agonizing over is the place of webslicing on this site. It was a terrific feature, but has been discontinued in Edge and IE11; it was never available in other browsers. If you have a view, email me through the contact tab. And if you're a regular user of this site for teaching and/or learning please do complete the feedback form (to the left).


What is Language Testing?
                    

Conferences: The website for LTRC 2017 in Colombia is now available here. AALA is now open for registration.
Coming Soon: The next podcast is Spring 2017, as it's now produced twice a year in conjunction with SAGE and Language Testing journal. I'm also planning a feature on item analysis. This is something that I often find isn't treated very well in the language testing books, and I need a resource on this for my own classes. It will take ages to write and produce, so I'll probably do it in sections. Watch this space!


Current Feature:
Language Testing Review of 2016
Click on the 'Features' link to see selected topics that have previously appeared in the features slot. These are changed up to four times a year, providing short pieces on subjects of interest to students of language testing and assessment.


The Language Testing Bookstore contains academic texts on languge testing. You can also use the Book Search page where you can input your own keywords. If you are a test taker, or preparing to take a test, the test preparation pages have links to the latest student texts, test preparation tips on YouTube, and information on language testing and immigration. We also provide links to many language testing related videos on YouTube.


Information Services
The website has a number of free Information Alert Services that are designed to help you keep up to date with what is going on in the world of language testing & assessment. These services use webslicing, which is a web feature introduced with Internet Explorer 8. When you subscribe to a webslice a tab is placed on the favourites bar of Internet Explorer and you are alerted whenever the information is updated. You can currently subscribe to any of the following services:

Language Testing News: Available on this page. My search engine scours the world press for testing stories and updates this page on the fly every three hours. Webslicing is no longer available for this service as it is being phased out in more recent versions of IE and Edge.

Jobs4U: A daily roundup of jobs in testing and assessment. You see just the most recent job available in the alert, but just click to go to the employment page where you will find all the new positions just advertised. Frequency: Daily.

Article Alert: Checks the language testing journals and many applied linguistics and educational research journals for articles on language testing. When you receive an alert, go to the page to see all the new articles that have just been published. Frequency: Weekly.

Language Testing Bytes: Notification of new issues of the podcast so you can download them from this website. Frequency: twice a year.

Also available is this website's bulletin with periodic information about updates and other language testing news. Frequency: variable.

Humour
Testing and assessment is serious because it can affect the lives of test takers, institutions, and society. But like all human and social activities, there is a humorous side as well. So after all the heavy stuff in the rest of this website, you may enjoy looking at testing in a rather different way, in the humour page, where you'll find video, audio, cartoons and other fun stuff related to testing and assessment.
