Sage/ILTA Book Award
Share |

The SAGE/ILTA award for Best Book on Language Testing was first announced in the July 2008 issue of the journal Language Testing. The award was to be offered every third year and books nominated for the award could be monographs or edited volumes. There were to be five judges of the award, drawn from the Editorial Board of Language Testing and the Executive Board of ILTA. An interview with the awardee was to be published in the LT journal together with a commissioned book review which offered a critical appreciation of the book's contribution to the field. The award, which consists of a plaque, US$400 dollars, and US$100 worth of SAGE publications is presented at LTRC.

The winning volume is selected on the basis of the following criteria:
• awareness of fundamental issues in the field;
• development of our knowledge and understanding;
• quality of argumentation;
• originality and/or distinctive treatment of the topic;
• general presentation and scholarship; and
• likely impact.

Nominations closed on November 20, 2019.
