Language Testing Updates at on
     
 
Language Testing July 2015
This month we have a new podcast on the topic of diagnostic language testing and assessment. In this issue I'm joined by Eunice Jang of the University of Toronto to discuss this important area of language testing. Language Testing Bytes is now under re-design and will be relaunched in 2016 as a biannual podcast with a Spring and Autumn issue. Further details available in the not too distant future. In the meantime, we hope you enjoy the current issue of LTB.


What is Language Testing?
                    

Coming Soon: Issue 22 of Language Testing Bytes is the final issue for 2015, as the sponsor (Sage) would like it to become biannual. As I need a sponsor, I'm not going to argue! So we will be relaunching in the Spring of 2016, with a Spring and Autumn edition. There's going to be a different look and feel to the podcast, but further details will be available early in the New Year.


Current Feature:
Philosophical Trails in Language Testing.
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.

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.
