Éditeur : Taylor Francis Ltd, United Kingdom
Date d'édition : 2015
Reliure : Hardback
Etat du livre : New
Language: English . Brand New Book. Most scholars consider the birth of modern language testing as a field of study to be the year 1961 with the publication of Robert Lado s book Language Testing and John Carroll s chapter Fundamental Considerations in Language Testing . In the decades since it has grown in scope into a deeper and wider theoretical and intellectual field of study. The intellectual growth has come with the birth of psychometrics, specifically, in using statistical analyses for test development and research; with ideas from linguistics, in developing language tests that are communicatively oriented; with ideas from ethics, specifically, in developing qualities, codes, and standards so that tests are fair and just. This has been coupled with the growth of the field into a billion-dollar worldwide enterprise partly fuelled by the practical need to assess the English language ability of test-takers who want to study at English-medium universities or work in offices that mainly use English for communication. This new four-volume collection from Routledge captures this burgeoning field by offering a cogent and comprehensive state-of-the-art coverage of the very best material. The volumes have been conceptualized both as a scholarly contribution in terms of theories and research as well as a practical guide in terms of test development in the field of language testing and assessment.
