Language Testing
August 2016

I've finally been persuaded to upgrade my computer to Windows 10 this month. I discovered that it comes with a new browser, Microsoft Edge. This is a very lean browser with all the functionality of previous versions of Internet Explorer stripped out. You can read a fair review of Microsoft Edge here. For those of you who use other browsers this won't be of much concern. But this website makes extensive use of web slicing to give users notification of updates to the site on the browser toolbar. This feature was introduced with IE8. So if you use the webslicing updates you'll need to keep using the latest version of IE. If you haven't tried web slicing, I recommend it! Look for the green icon in the tool bar to subscribe to information services.


What is Language Testing?
                    

Conferences: The website for LTRC 2017 in Colombia is now available here. Coming Soon: The next podcast is scheduled for the Autumn now that it is biannual. The next addition to the features is likely to be something on the area of item and distractor analysis, but this very much depends upon time and interest in this topic among my students.


Current Feature:
Context in Language Testing: An audio lecture.
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 contains academic texts on languge testing. You can also use the Book Search page where you can input your own keywords. If you are a test taker, or preparing to take a test, the test preparation pages have links to the latest student texts, test preparation tips on YouTube, and information on language testing and immigration. We also provide links to many language testing related videos on YouTube.


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. 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.

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.
