What is Language Testing?
                    

Latest Podcast: Issue 27 of Language Testing Bytes will be released in April.

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.
