2022 Virtual Conference | October 14-15, 2022
Applying Meaningful and Sound Assessment Practices in New Global Realities
The global response to the COVID-19 pandemic has brought about many changes in the fields of English language testing and assessment as online remote options were quickly developed and implemented. Still, the need for the sound application of foundational principles in the fields of language assessment and testing remains unchanged. This conference focuses on how sound language assessment and testing principles have been applied in these new language testing and assessment contexts and how professionals plan to apply these principles in the future.
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.
