This unit offers an opportunity to fulfil three purposes related to language testing and assessment: (1) review and critically analyse the central concepts of the field; (2) evaluate current language tests and testing systems; and (3) design and implement a test of one's own making, thus applying principles acquired during the study. The unit also invites discussion about alternative forms of assessment and about the political, social and pedagogical context of assessment.
After successful completion of this unit, students will be able to:
1. Explain the essential concepts of language testing and assessment;
2. Critically evaluate the various types of assessment;
3. Interpret scores and performance in language assessment; and
4. Create a useful and defensible language test or assessment procedure.
Up to 3 hours of on campus delivery per week - details to be advised.
