Abstract:

This volume brings together a large group of researchers from across the world to provide in-depth coverage of a number of perennial and important issues in assessing Chinese learners of English. The empirical studies included here highlight the constant challenges and conundrums in understanding the language constructs of assessment, the various assessment methods, innovations and policies, Chinese learners' preparation for and performance on English language tests, as well as the consequences of assessing Chinese learners of English at different educational levels and institutions and for varying purposes. This volume will appeal to language testing professionals and policy makers as well as researchers in the areas of language testing, applied linguistics, second language acquisition, and international/comparative education.
