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


What is Language Testing?
                    

Happy New Year 2018!: It is time for my review of 2017, which I am told by users of my website is a fairly popular item. Based on the traditional news reviews, this is my look back at some of the key testing stories of 2017. Click on the link, and enjoy!

Statistics Update: A number of website users have asked for the Item Facility and Pbi spreadsheet to accommodate a larger number of items. This has now been done courtesy of William Bonk (University of Colorado), a great contributor to this website. The new spreadsheet can be downloaded from the statistics page. Just one warning! This can only be used with raw scores, not scaled scores.

Latest Podcast: I talk to Sara Cushing of Georgia State University about the use of Corpus Linguistics in Language Testing. Check out issue 26 of Language Testing Bytes. Issue 27 due in the Spring of 2018.

Latest Video: Talia Isaacs of University College London talks about assessing pronunciation. Go to the video page by clicking on this link or using the navigation menu on the left. When you are in the multiplex scroll forward to video number 21. You may also wish to download Talia's new co-edited book on assessing pronunciation, which has recently been published as an open access pilot. Happy watching and reading!

Click on the 'Features' link to see selected topics from the Features Filing Cabinet. These provide short pieces on subjects of interest to students of language testing and assessment.I also produce a yearly review of selected testing and assessment stories that have made the headlines during the previous 12 months.


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.

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.
