Assessing language through computer technology by Carol A Chapelle( Book )

21 editions published between 2006 and 2012 in English and held by 376 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1998 and 1999 three of the largest providers of educational tests introduced computer-based versions of proficiency tests for English as a Foreign Language. At around the same time, many institutions began to offer Web-based tests for particular language courses and classes. These two phenomena have greatly added to the momentum of work in computer-assisted testing and mean that assessment through computer technology is becoming a fact for language learners in educational settings, and therefore for teachers and researchers. This volume is the first to consider the theoretical, methodological and practical issues, and their implications for language teaching professionals wishing to engage with computer-assisted assessment."--Jacket
Understanding language testing by Dan Douglas( Book )

18 editions published between 2009 and 2017 in English and held by 201 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Understanding Language Testing presents an introduction to language tests and the process of test development that starts at the very beginning. Assuming no knowledge of the field, the book promotes a practical understanding of language testing using examples from a variety of languages. While grounded on solid theoretical principles, the book focuses on fostering a true understanding of the various uses of language tests and the process of test development, scoring test performance, analyzing and interpreting test results, and above all, using tests as ethically and fairly as possible, and feel positive about their language learning. Each chapter includes a summary, suggestions for further reading, and exercises. As such this is the ideal book for both beginning students of linguistics and language education, or anyone in a related discipline looking for a first introduction to language testing

The papers cover issues ranging from construct definition to the design and applications of language tests, including their importance as a means of exploring larger issues in language teaching, language learning and language policy.
