FYI: Language Teacher Educators Assessment Needs Surveys

Author: Victoria Nier

Linguistic Field(s): Applied Linguistics
Language Acquisition
Discipline of Linguistics

FYI Body: The Center for Applied Linguistics is conducting online survey research on the assessment needs of language teacher educators (those who educate and train language teachers) and second language acquisition (SLA) researchers. This research seeks to define the current assessment knowledge and practices of language teacher educators and SLA researchers. We also hope to identify their needs and hopes for future resources that provide assessment information and training.

CAL welcomes your contributions to this research by completing one or both of these surveys. The surveys are voluntary, anonymous, and will take about 15 minutes to complete. If you are interested in participating, please use the appropriate link below.
