Accurate educational measurement encourages effective English curriculum design, language learning, teaching, assessment, and better informed, more equitable decision-making in society. This project will focus on the impacts of English language assessment around the world on educational practices and attitudes towards language learning. It will identify uses of assessment that support effective language learning and aspects of assessments that can act as barriers. The key objective will be to investigate how assessment tools, paired with new technologies can support teachers in helping people to learn languages more effectively. Through CRELLA’s partnerships with assessment providers and language trainers, the outcomes will equip teachers around the world with the necessary knowledge and competence in developing assessments that are beneficial to learning.
