About this book

Introduction

"The series of investigations and reports in this book edited by Dr. Sahbi Hidri makes an important contribution to the expanding body of knowledge related to classroom assessment in language teaching. Wide-ranging in both the international contexts and focus on varied aspects of assessment, the book provides a rich resource and reference text exploring the multiple dimensions and challenges of effective language assessment." --Eddy White, University of Arizona, USA

This edited book brings together fifteen original empirical studies from a variety of international contexts to provide a detailed exploration of language assessment, testing and evaluation. Language assessment has a key role in the development and implementation of language and educational policies at the national level, and this book examines some of the impacts - both positive and negative - of different skills testing and examination approaches on learning outcomes and individual students' language learning. This book will be of interest to scholars working in applied linguistics and language education, teacher training, testing and evaluation, as well as stakeholders such as practitioners, educators, educational agencies, and test developers.

Sahbi Hidri is Assistant Professor in the Department of English at Tunis University, Tunisia, and Senior Specialist in Assessment at Abu Dhabi Women's College, UAE.
