Language Testing Updates at on
     
 
Language Testing
August - September 2015

I will be away from base and without email for a large part of August and September, but hope to be back at the start of our new semester. But as always, the website will auto-update, so you get all the testing news, job information, and new publications, on a regular basis. If you are in need of some summer language testing reading, don't forget that my new book is now available: Re-examining Language Testing: A Philosophical and Social Inquiry. You can order a copy from Amazon US or Amazon UK. There is also a new set of resources that are algined to each chapter in the book. Hope you have a great summer.


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.


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.

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.
