Language Testing Updates at on
     
 

Please take a moment to complete our short feedback survey, which will help with future development of the website.

Language Testing
June 2017

Since the reintroduction of the webslice news on this page there has been a significant number of subscriptions being taken out, which justifies the work required to revamp it. Many thanks for the many comments on its usefulness. Speaking of which, if you are a regular user of this site, please do compete the feedback survey (link on the left). Shortly I will be compiling all the data from the survey to write up as part of an article on the learning and teaching of language testing and assessment. Your feedback is really important, so thank you if you've already completed the survey. Just 15 minutes of your time! This month, just the regular updates to the website, with all the usual daily information from jobs to articles and news. Visit regularly to keep up to date with everything that's going on.


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. It's the most efficient way to keep track of language testing and educational assessment in the world press.

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.
