Product description

It begins by considering why we need a special book on young learner assessment, and describes the nature of young learner language learning. The assessment approach is task-based and is centred around tasks and techniques suitable for young learners, with particular emphasis on classroom assessment. Oral language assessment and reading and writing assessment are addressed in separate chapters, as is the large-scale testing of young learners. Underpinned by theory, the book is full of practical guidelines, and draws on examples of assessment contexts, issues and practices from around the world. Assessing Young Language Learners was winner of the Kenneth W Mildenberger Prize in 2006.

Key features

  • Gives theoretical background information to support decisions on assessment.
  • Addresses large-scale testing issues and strategies.
