Review:

“Central aim of the book is to examine and consolidate the existing literature on assessing Chinese learners of English. ... not only introduces studies related to English language assessment in China but also functions as a platform for researchers worldwide to facilitate a better understanding of English language assessment in China. It is successful in reviewing existing findings from research on assessing Chinese learners of English, while also encouraging researchers to continue developing language assessment research in the Chinese context.”  (Jian Xu and Barley Mak, Applied Linguistics, Issue 1-4, 2016)
