Publishing your research with language assessment journals: a discussion between editors, graduate students, and early-career researchers
Original Air Date: Wednesday, September 16
Organizer:  ILTA Graduate Student Assembly (GSA)

For graduate students and early career researchers (ECRs), publishing a journal article can be a journey full of rewards, but also challenges and uncertainties. One needs the determination to submit a manuscript, the patience to wait for a response, the resilience to face criticism and not to give up, the tenacity to go through rounds of revisions, and the courage to face the final decision. To demystify the publishing process and to empower graduate students and ECRs along the journey, the Graduate Student Assembly (GSA) of the International Language Testing Association is organising this webinar. We have invited editors from Assessing Writing, Language Assessment Quarterly and Language Testing, who will speak about the publishing requirements in their respective journals as well as tell us about the essential Dos and Don'ts. We have also invited a graduate student representative to share his personal experiences of getting his language assessment research published. We aim to have an open dialogue about publishing in the field of language assessment. This dialogue is informed by a survey carried out with ILTA graduate student members, and is to be enriched by an extensive Q&A session, where you will be able to ask questions and talk to the presenters. Grasp this great opportunity and ignite the conversation with your questions


Exploring the future of online language testing and assessment: Technological opportunities and challenges
Original Air Date: June 17, 2020
Organizer:  Erik Voss, Teachers College, Columbia University, USA

A fundamental shift in education is occurring around the world as teachers and students transition to online/remote/distance learning. Language teachers are not only learning to navigate online education but also how to assess language in an online environment. This trend from in-person to online language testing is not new but has been accelerated by recent events such as stay-at-home requests and test center closures. For example, students applying for university admission are requesting deadline extensions, causing concern for many stakeholders who rely on language test scores for making high-stakes decisions. Teachers in many educational contexts struggle with adapting in-person placement, diagnostic, and achievement tests to online delivery with a variety of tools, platforms, or technological expertise. This situation prompts an array of issues to consider, including the construct of language performance from ad hoc adaptations.

While webinars and newsletters elicit stories of how to adapt to the current situation, we also need to consider best practices in language testing (ILTA Guidelines for Practice) to meet an increasing demand for online language testing and assessment, both in response to the current situation as well as to accommodate the future demand for online language testing.

This panel of invited language testing researchers will provide current views on fundamental issues related to the development and delivery of home-based, accessible high- and low-stakes language testing.
