Title: Testing the Untestable in Language Education
Edited By: Amos Paran
Lies Sercu
URL: http://www.multilingual-matters.com/display.asp?isb=9781847692658
Series Title: New Perspectives on Language and Education
Description:

The testing and assessment of language competence continues to be a much
debated issue in foreign language teaching and research. This book is the
first one to address the testing of four important dimensions of foreign
language education which have been left largely unconsidered: learner
autonomy, intercultural competence, literature and literary competence, and
the integration of content and language learning. Each area is considered
through a theoretical framework, followed by two empirical studies, raising
questions of importance to all language teachers: How can one test literary
competence? Can intercultural competence be measured? What about the
integrated assessment of content-and-language in CLIL and teaching? Is
progress in autonomous learning skill gaugeable? The book constitutes
essential reading for anyone interested in the testing and assessment of
seemingly largely untestable aspects of foreign language competence.
