Language Testing
July 2017

The language testing bookstore has been a popular part of the website for a number of years. It has been used to keep track of new books in language testing, and many people have ordered copies through the purchase feature. However, the bookstore WILL SHORTLY CLOSE. It is operated as an Amazon affiliate site using their a-store technology. Amazon has announced that it will be closing all a-stores in October, and will stop a-store operators from updating product lists in August. I am therefore very sorry to say that the bookstore will be removed from the website at the end of July. The BookSearch facility has been removed with immediate effect as Amazon has reconfigured its systems to make it impossible for my search engine to integrate with Amazon content. Essentially, Amazon wishes users to put adverts on their website that Amazon can populate as it wishes. This is a game I do not wish to play, as you would get content unrelated to testing and assessment. Luckly, most of the features of this site do not depend on external providers, so I don't envisage anything else disappearing! Do use the bookshop this month before it goes forever!


What is Language Testing?
                    

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.


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.


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.

You can currently subscribe to any of the following services:

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.
