"NAATI Australia is searching for experts in test design for assessing
competency in interpreting and translation as distinct from experts in
language proficiency test design. Also, it is searching for completed, or
on-going research work in the methodology for assessing I/T test
reliability and the level of difficulty, particularly between different
passages of the same language as well as between different languages.
