Meeting Description:

Writing Assessment in Higher Education: Making the Framework Work
Two-day International Symposium which will be held in Amsterdam on 27 & 28 October 2011

The theme is based on the consideration that the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages is inadequately specified at the higher competence levels with regard to descriptors for written competence. As such, the framework provides insufficient information for curriculum design and assessment. Research conducted at the VU in the context of the Pearson chair in Language testing is primarily geared to defining relevant linguistic parameters for the assessment of academic writing.

Plenary Speakers:

John H.A.L. de Jong, Pearson Professor of Language Testing, VU University Amsterdam and President of EALTA

Jan Hulstijn, Professor of Second-Language Acquisition, University of Amsterdam

Liz Hamp-Lyons, Visiting Professor in Language Assessment, University of Bedfordshire

Tom Landauer, Professor of Psychology, University of Colorado at Boulder
