Language Testing
September 2016

This summer has been extremely hectic at work, which is why the video hasn't been updated for a while. Things will change once we get into October and I have more time for the website. The next update will be a new podcast on predictive validity, featuring a conversation with Brent Bridgeman and Yeonsuk Cho on their recently published research into the correlation between scores on academic English tests and criteria such as GPA and other outcomes during the first year in University. I hope to have this available early in October. In the meantime, all the updates to news, jobs and the latest language testing videos on YouTube will be available daily.


What is Language Testing?
                    

Conferences: The website for LTRC 2017 in Colombia is now available here. Coming Soon: The next podcast features a conversation with Brent Bridgeman and Yeonsuk Cho on predictive validity, which will be released in early October.
