1 - 2 weeks availability


This volume brings together two related fields - language testing and language programme evaluation - and seeks to encourage closer relations between the two in both academic curricula and professional practice. It introduces readers not just to basic concepts, but to some of the major social, educational and research concerns that characterize language testing and evaluation. The book can serve either as a basic text for a taught course, or as independent reading in self-study mode. All chapters include suggestions for further reading, and discussions frequently point towards possible explorations in classroom research and practice.
