From the Back Cover:

The Companion to Language Assessment is a state-of-the-art overview of the crucial topics for scholars and practitioners of language assessment, teaching, and learning. The four-volume work examines the multifaceted dimensions of language assessment, from the assessment of individual skills, the design of assessments, and the impact on language learners, to how research is conducted and assessment is practiced around the world. Organized thematically by volume, the 140 chapters provide comprehensive coverage of:

  • Volume I: Abilities, Contexts, and Learners: examining the assessed skills of language learners including aptitude, listening, speaking, grammar, and literacy, among others, and assessing learners from young language learners to working professionals;
  • Volume II: Approaches and Development: discussing assessment in the classroom and on a large scale, developmental tools such as designing and writing assessments, and current technological approaches;
  • Volume III: Evaluation, Methodology, and Interdisciplinary Themes: exploring evaluation of assessments through quantitative, qualitative, and mixed approaches, and interdisciplinary themes, among others, from philosophy, language acquisition, forensic sciences, and legal and ethical issues;
  • Volume IV: Assessment Around the World: featuring coverage of assessments in English and other languages from around the world.

This work brings together the leading voices and cutting-edge research in this critically important field. It is a key resource for scholars and practitioners in the fields of language teaching and learning, language policy and planning, language assessment and evaluation, and education at all levels.
