Book Information


Title: Exploring Language Assessment and Testing
Subtitle: Language in Action
Written By: Anthony Green
Series Title: Routledge Introductions to Applied Linguistics

Routledge Introductions to Applied Linguistics is a series of introductory level textbooks, primarily designed for those beginning postgraduate studies, or taking an introductory MA course as well as advanced undergraduates.

The books take an innovative 'practice to theory' approach, with a 'back-to-front' structure. This leads the reader from real-world problems and issues, through a discussion of intervention and how to engage with these concerns, before finally relating these practical issues to theoretical foundations. Additional features include tasks with commentaries, a glossary of key terms, and an annotated further reading section.

Exploring Language Assessment and Testing is a straightforward introduction to the field that provides an inclusive and impartial survey of both classroom based assessment by teachers and larger scale testing, using concrete examples to guide students to the relevant literature.

This book is an indispensable introduction to the areas of language assessment and testing, and will be of interest to language teachers as well as postgraduate and advanced undergraduate students studying Language Education, Applied Linguistics and Language Assessment.
