Meeting Description:

The second annual Meeting on English Language Teaching (MELT) will be hosted by the École de Langues at the Université du Québec à Montréal. MELT is a forum that explores language teaching at the college and university level. For the 2013 program, we chose to focus on second language assessment.

Call for Papers:

We invite submissions for presentations on any aspect of second language assessment. We are interested, this year, in creating a forum where language professionals can share ideas and current research on issues related to both proficiency/placement testing and classroom assessment. Preference will be given to papers on adult second language learning. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

Language proficiency assessment
Issues in measurement and evaluation
Optimal testing environments/platforms
Interpreting test results
Validating language tests
Measures for classroom assessment
Related applied linguistic research

Even though the conference is primarily aimed at English language teachers, we welcome research based on language assessment in languages other than English.

Talks will be 30 minutes long, followed by 10 minutes of discussion. We ask that the abstracts be at most two pages long (including bibliography), font size 12, and one inch margins. Each abstract should be submitted in two copies, .pdf format, to meltuqam.ca (please include ‘abstract’ in the subject heading of the email). One of these abstracts should be anonymous.

Abstracts and presentations may be in English or French.

Abstract deadline: March 14, 2013
Notification of acceptance: March 22, 2013

Please note: Conference proceedings will be published by the COOP - UQAM.
