Language Testing
June 2016

The SAGE/ILTA Award for books published in language testing has been made again this year, and two of my own titles have been announced as joint winners: Re-examining Language Testing: A philosophical and social inquiry (2015) and, with Fred Davidson, the Routledge Handbook of Language Testing (2012). Routledge is now offering a 20% discount on both titles during 2016. You can download a flyer for Re-examining here, and for the Handbook here. The codes on the flyers can be used on the Routledge website. Click here for more information on these books. This month is LTRC in Palermo. I'm not giving a paper myself, but I will be attending. So I hope to see many of the users of this website there.


What is Language Testing?
                    

Conferences: LTRC 2016 is being held in Palermo this month. Click here for details.
Grants: TOEFL 2017 Research Grant Applications are invited by 15th July, 2016.
Coming Soon: The next podcast is scheduled for the Autumn now that it is biannual. The next addition to the features is likely to be something on the area of item and distractor analysis, but this very much depends upon time and interest in this topic among my students.


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.
