On 11th March 2016, the Department of English Language and Applied Linguistics at the University of Reading hosted the annual British Association of Applied Linguists (BAAL) Testing, Evaluation & Assessment (TEA) SIG conference. This was an exciting event in which 80 delegates from different countries took part in a one day conference on “Assessment for Learning and Assessment of Learning”. http://www.baal.org.uk/sig_tea.html
The participants included distinguished scholars such as Professor Cyril Wier (OBE), prominent alumni including Professor Barry O’Sullivan and Dr Nick Saville, and many of our current staff and postgraduate and research students. The talks and posters presented at the event offered new perspectives to language assessment and opened new horizons for language teaching and learning.
The presentation slides from the conference will be available here:
