Language Testing Updates at on
     
 
Language Testing
November 2014

The next language testing feature will be released in time for Christmas. These have been a little sparse this year due to my sabbatical, but the end of the year always sees the yearly review in which I look back over the language testing stories of the year in journalistic style. In the meantime, enjoy the daily updates across the site, including news on this page, journals, jobs and articles.


What is Language Testing?
                    

Conferences: The LTRC 2015 website is up and running early as the conference is in the Spring.
Coming Soon: Language Testing Review of 2014 will be available as Christmas and New Year reading.


Current Feature:
Multiple Choice Items.
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 is an Amazon affiliate. We try to keep the store up to date with all books on language testing currently in print. These are arranged under a number of categories from general texts, to specialist areas of testing and assessment. You can also find texts on educational measurement and statistics that are commonly used in language testing programmes. All books ordered through the bookstore are delivered by Amazon.


Information Alert 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. Information on how webslicing works is available on the site's technical page. 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. When you subscribe your browser will check for new language testing stories on this website every few hours. Go straight to the top story, or come back to this page to see all new stories in the world's media. Frequency: Daily.

Jobs4U: A daily roundup of jobs in testing and assessment. You see just the most recent job available in the alert, but just click to go to the employment page where you will find all the new positions just advertised. Frequency: Daily.

Article Alert: Checks the language testing journals and many applied linguistics and educational research journals for articles on language testing. When you receive an alert, go to the page to see all the new articles that have just been published. Frequency: Weekly.

Language Testing Bytes: Notification of new issues of the podcast so you can download them from this website. Frequency: 3 - 4 times annually.

Language Testing on Youtube: Keep up with the videos published by testing, assessment and media companies. Frequency: Variable.

Also available is this website's bulletin with periodic information about updates and other language testing news. Frequency: variable.

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.
