9781781794708: Assessing the Language of Young Learners (British Council Monographs on Modern Language Testing)

This volume offers new insights into the assessment of the language of Young Learners (YLs). YLs are defined here as being from 5 to 17 years, and are treated as three distinct subgroups: younger children (5/6 to 8/9 years), older children (8/9 to 12/13 years) and teenagers (12/13 to 17 years).

The first half addresses fundamental issues, beginning with the characteristics of YLs and how these are manifested in first language development. The authors consider the potential ability of each age group to perform in a second or foreign language, proposing a rough age-related correspondence with CEFR levels. Finally, principles of assessment, specifically formative assessment and testing, are presented in the light of linguistic, cognitive and social development. The second half focuses on testing a range of 'skills'. Theoretical models of performance are introduced, followed by a practical analysis of approaches to the testing of each skill for the three age groups, illustrated with examples. The authors conclude by summing up developmental characteristics of each age group, and their implications for language testing.

The book is intended for a wide readership within the field of teaching and assessing the language of young learners. Researchers are offered scope for further investigation of what emerges from the discussion, while practitioners will hopefully find support in their day-to-day work with YLs.

Review:

"Overall, I believe that this is a very comprehensive and nice introduction to assessment for young learners. It was written in such a clear and accessible manner. This book will be a great addition to the existing literature on this topic."- Yoko Goto Butler, Associate Professor, Penn Graduate School of Education Assessing the Language of Young Learners is a short and well organized book, in which each chapter constitutes the foundation for the following, which in turn expands topics in a cohesive manner. Hasselgreen and Caudwell contribute their experience and knowledge to highlight main ideas in the field of language assessment for children and adolescents. Their clear explanations are enriched by abundant examples and task-based tests, in line with the Monographs Series purposes of providing the readership with theoretical information and practical implications." --Laura Dubcovsky, UC Davis, LINGUIST List 28.2704
