Book Information

   

Title: Washback in Language Testing
Subtitle: Research Contexts and Methods
Description:

"Washback" refers to the influence of language testing on teaching and
learning. This volume, at the important intersection of language testing
and teaching practices, presents theoretical, methodological, and practical
guidance for current and future washback studies. It provides an overview
of the complexity of washback and the various contextual factors entangled
within testing, teaching, and learning and presents empirical studies from
around the world that offer insights into the effects of washback in
specific educational contexts and models of research on which future
studies can be based.

"Washback in Language Testing: Research Contexts and Methods" is a valuable
resource for those who are interested in the application of findings to
actual teaching and learning situations or conduct washback research in
their own contexts, including educational and psychological testing
experts, alternative assessment people in all fields, and policy- and
decision-makers in educational and testing organizations.
