Meeting Description:

The English Language Testing Society is pleased to announce our inaugural international conference and welcome all those interested to join us and participate. See below for information about the conference and a link to submitting a proposal. Registration will be available from April.

Assessment covers broad territory, from the language classroom to large-scale testing centers. While there is common ground between proficiency testing and classroom assessment, for example the critical importance of validity and reliability, they also have their own distinctive features (e.g. formative feedback and classroom assessment). This conference, as with our organization, focuses on both of these types of assessment and the intersections, commonalities, and differences between them. With a focus on promoting assessment literacy and best practices, this conference welcomes presentation proposals from a broad range of testing areas.

Call for Papers:

We welcome proposals (max 300 words) related to classroom assessment, large-scale proficiency testing, or both. A full list of suggested topics is available on our website. The conference is intended for individuals, corporations, classroom teachers, program administrators and anybody engaged in English language testing who are interested in best practices and collaboration with colleagues from around the world.
