Book Information


Title: Assessing Young Language Learners
Written By: Penny McKay

New Edition

In this book the author builds a comprehensive framework for the assessment
of young language learners in both foreign language and second language
learning situations. She begins by considering why we need a special book
on young learner assessment, and describes the nature of young learner
language learning. The assessment approach is task-based and is centred
around tasks and techniques suitable for young learners, with particular
emphasis on classroom assessment. Oral language assessment, and
reading and writing assessment are addressed in separate chapters, as is the
large-scale testing of young learners. Underpinned by sound theory, the book
is full of practical guidelines, and draws on examples of assessment
contexts, issues and practices from around the world. Assessing Young
Language Learners was winner of the Kenneth W Mildenberger Prize in 2006.
