Language Testing
August 2017

The language testing bookstore has now been closed. It will take me a while for my anger at Amazon to subside. It has taken many years to build up the book lists through the a-store, which then enabled product information to be updated on the fly. Amazon is retiring this technology because it doesn't generate enough income for them. The replacement is either individual links, or allowing Amazon to populate pages with what they think they can sell. The first is too time consuming, the second unacceptable for a discipline specific website. It is a timely reminder for web developers that it is unwise to rely on third party content! As you will see, all the other parts of the site are controlled by me, and are still operational. More content on the way in the autumn, but plenty of daily updates in the meantime.


What is Language Testing?
                    

Coming Soon: The next podcast will be produced for the autumn of 2017 and will feature Sara Weigle talking to me about the use of corpus linguistics in language testing. More features on the way, but these are being delayed by the fact that I'm on sabbatical for the whole of 2017.


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.

These services use webslicing, which is a web feature introduced with Internet Explorer 8.

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.
