Meeting Description:

2006 International Conference on English Instruction and Assessment

Background:

Following the communicative theories of language and trends in methodology, language assessment has shifted its focus from discrete-point tests to performance-based measures. Now researchers are documenting the importance of interweaving assessment with instruction. Teachers are experimenting with alternate assessment formats to profile students' growth and change. Nevertheless, standardized tests are by and large used for screening and exit decisions in many areas. In addition to such dilemma, computer-based or web-based language assessment challenges English teachers and test writers. The conference will provide a forum for members of international English instruction and assessment community who are interested in sharing observations on changes in language assessment and its integration with bewildering technology. It is intended to be a sequel to the 2004 conference in Taiwan and a bi-annual event of National Chung Cheng University.
