Crosscurrents: Proficiency Testing & Classroom Assessment
Assessment covers a broad territory, from the language classroom to large-scale testing centers. While there is common ground between proficiency testing and classroom assessment, for example the critical importance of validity and reliability, they also have their own distinctive features (e.g. formative feedback and classroom assessment). This conference, as with our organization, focuses on both of these types of assessment and the intersections, commonalities, and differences between them.
