Language Testing
December 2016

Welcome to the December update of the Language Testing Website. Most of the new stuff this month is behind the scenes, such as new journals added to the articles search engine. This should give better coverage of what is being published in testing beyond the main journals like LT, LAQ, Assessing Writing, and the Ed. Measurement stuff. As it is the festive season I'm now working on my language testing review of 2016, which I hope is a Christmas and New Year distraction when other things begin to wear off! I intend to release it around 26th or 27th. In the meantime, I hope you have a terrific Christmas.


What is Language Testing?
                    

Conferences: The website for LTRC 2017 in Colombia is now available here. Coming Soon: The next podcast is Spring 2017, as it's now produced twice a year in conjunction with SAGE and Language Testing journal. The next feature will be my yearly review, out around Christmas.


Current Feature:
Context in Language Testing: An audio lecture.
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 Alert 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.

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.
