Testing times: Ensuring success

Speaker: Michael Philips

This multifaceted presentation will begin with a brief theoretical review of the major types and functions of language assessments, as well as fundamental criteria and desirable properties of good tests. Practical advice regarding easy mistakes and critical things to avoid in constructing, mediating, and applying test items will also be given. It will detour into the interesting field of automated scoring of speaking and writing tests (both English and Japanese) and examine the latest trends.
