Language Testing Updates at on
     
 
Language Testing April 2015
Hot on the heels of last month's new feature on correlation, this month we have a new podcast on the assessment of aviation English. In this podcast, I interview Hyejeong Kim of Melbourne University, talking about research she's just published in the journal Language Testing. The next major upgrade to the site will be the release of all the support materials for my new book. Design is well underway, and I hope to give website users a preview before the book is released sometime in June.


What is Language Testing?
                    

Conferences: Deadline for proposals for MWALT 2015 is 15th June. There is also a call for papers for the first International Language Assessment Conference in Egypt (I-LACE), with a deadline of 1st May, 2015. ECOLT 2015 is in October, and the deadline for proposalsis 5th June. Next up is the conference of the Consortium on Useful Assessment in Language and Humanities Education, which takes place in October. Deadline for paper submissions is 5th June. Access their website here.
Coming Soon: The next podcast will be available in July 2015 on the topic of diagnostic language assessment. The next major update on the site will be the complete accompanyment to my new book, which is going to be published in June.

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.
