Assessment Literacy Across Applied Linguistics

2:15 - 3:30pm
Presented at: Language Testing Research Colloquium (LTRC) 2012

Knowledge about language assessment is important for applied linguistics researchers and practitioners across a variety of contexts. This work in progress session will discuss the results of a multi-year project that examines the assessment literacy needs of practitioners in two fields, Second Language Acquisition (SLA) researchers and professionals who work in Language Teacher Education (LTE). During the work in progress session, researchers will discuss the results of focus groups with these target groups and planned project developments and facilitate a discussion about collaboration between language testers and practitioners in diverse disciplines.
