Sammanfattning (abstract):
The aim of my lecture is to focus on Good Practice in Language Testing and Assessment, from conceptual as well as practical points of view. Special emphasis is placed on assessment as a reciprocal phenomenon with an obvious pedagogical potential to promote learning. Five fundamental questions are addressed, namely Why?, What?, How?, Who? & And…?. Throughout the presentation, the value of transparency and collaboration at different levels is emphasized, not least in relation to the test takers/students. In this, some experiences and examples are presented from the development of national formative and summative language assessment and testing materials in Sweden, as well as from a European study of students’ and teachers perceptions of language testing and assessment. Finally, the concept of Good Practice is discussed in relation to Guidelines developed within EALTA (European Association for Language Testing and Assessment), currently available in 35 different languages.
