NEW DIRECTIONS IN ENGLISH LANGUAGE ASSESSMENT
8-9 DECEMBER 2019, PACIFICO YOKOHAMA, YOKOHAMA, JAPAN
The 7th New Directions conference invites proposals for papers on the following main theme and subthemes:
Realising Potential: Policy, Engagement and Impact
The main theme considers the critical role that language assessment plays in the creation, reform, and implementation of language assessment policy. We invite papers that focus on issues surrounding assessment policy, including how policy is created, how it is implemented, and the effect it has on stakeholders. This theme includes the effect this has on test-takers, how teachers orient syllabuses towards tests, decisions based on test results, the motivations of policy makers when introducing tests and the overall effect of test use on language proficiency and acquisition.
- Alignment of Policy with Context
- Stakeholder Engagement
- Assessment and Inclusion
- Implementing Performance Assessment
- Technology and Consequences
There will be a section of parallel sessions set aside for outstanding proposals on topics or innovative assessment research of general interest to the wider field of language testing and assessment which are not directly related to the main theme.
