Language Testing Updates at on
     
 

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

Click to Start

Language Testing February 2016
One of the topics coming up in my language testing classes this month is assessment for learning. I always take the opportunity to update materials for others at the same time. So you'll find updates on the pages AFLI, AFLII and AFLIII, and a link on those pages to a new Formative Assessment YouTube Page. The latter is designed to search YouTube for the 15 most recent videos uploaded on formative assessment. As always, I hope that these pages and the new YouTube page are useful to students and teachers of language testing. If they are, please remember to fill in my survey of how you use this website (look left). If learners need good feedback, so do teachers who design web-based learning resources!

Conferences: Call for papers for the 3rd MwALT 2016, deadline 13th 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.
