Language Testing
April 2017

In the April update to the Language Testing website we release the latest issue of Language Testing Bytes, which is now a biannual podcast. In Issue 25 we welcome back John Read from the University of Aukland to discuss post-entry language assessment (or PELA) in Higher Education. His recent book on this topic is a must-read for anyone involved in post-entry EAP assessment and testing. The podcast is produced in conjunction with Language Testing Journal from SAGE publishers.


What is Language Testing?
                    

Conferences: There is a call for papers for ECOLT 2017 Deadline is 5th June. And 15th May is the deadling for proposals for ILACE 2017 at the AUC in Egypt.
Coming Soon: The next podcast will be produced for the autumn of 2017. More features on the way, but these are being delayed by the fact that I'm on sabbatical for the whole of 2017. But watch this space, as they will start to appear slowly during the year.


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.
