Academic literacy assessment: its role in times of change

changeWhat influence does the institutional, social or political landscape have on the way in which we test a person’s ability to handle academic language?  And how should one go about it? What impact should the tests have on language planning, instruction, and development?

These and other challenges will be thoroughly discussed by a team of experts on July 4, at the 40th Language Testing Research Colloquium (LTRC 2018).

Read more about the symposium entitled: Transformation and transition: four perspectives from the south on academic literacy assessment in times of change.

We look forward to sharing the papers with you, either at the Conference, or later on this website.
