Description & Coverage
Description:

This handbook takes an informed look at researching perspectives on language assessment through reflections on classroom applications. It also makes recommendations to strengthen quality language assessments by drawing on a variety of research methodologies. It is not solely bound to one method, albeit encompasses both qualitative and quantitative methodologies together with nascent perspectives and approaches in language assessment (e.g. continuous cumulative assessment, performance-based assessment, computer-aided assessment, dynamic assessment, formal assessment, etc.).

Our knowledge of language assessment has been shaped by skills assessment. In doing this, language assessment is regarded as the verification of learners’ language proficiency, especially in formal contexts. Quite the contrary, quickened technological and socio-cultural developments have a considerable effect on language use revisiting the assessment of language abilities. It also reveals a potential mismatch between language teachers’ theoretical knowledge and their practical considerations for classroom practice, which is also noted as teachers’ assessment literacy. With these in mind, this edited book also highlights classroom practices for practitioners, test (-item) developers, educators, and language learners.
