分议题

  • 语言能力量表研究

将探讨语言能力量表的研发,以及在语言教学与评价中的应用。

征集探讨语言能力量表的研制、应用及本地适应性发展等话题的论文。

  • 教育体系中的招生和毕业外语测试

结合教育体系对于学生语言能力的要求与期望,进一步探讨学生入学和结业时的语言测评和教学方式的联动关系。

征集探讨学生的入学和结业时语言测评与教学之间的相互影响的论文。

  • 评估教师的语言教学能力

语言测试不仅仅是对学生语言能力的评估,更能够间接地衡量教师的语言教学能力。

征集探讨评价教师的语言教学能力、和语言能力如何影响备考及学生学习的相关论文。

  • 语言教师的测评素养

语言测评对于教学的正向或负向反拨作用已经引起了诸多讨论。教师的测评理念是保证教学以提升语言应用能力为最终目的,而非以考试为目的之关键所在。

征集探讨关于提高和测量教师英语水平的挑战的相关论文。

  • 面向就业需求的外语测试

教育的根本目的是为促进就业。从教学和测评的相互作用出发,思考语言测评如何能够对提升考生的就业能力起到积极促进作用。

  • 人工智能和技术在语言测试中的应用及研究

从以就业为导向的教育教学出发,培养学生熟练使用外语与他人有效交流的能力显得尤为重要。特别在检验口语或写作教学的有效性上,语言测评需要能够体现语言的实际应用。举行大规模的口语或写作测试对人力资源的需求较高,这对于大多数教育机构而言,实现相对困难。而从长远来看,科技被视为攻克这一挑战的有效途径。

征集探讨当前科学技术的发展或有关使用机器评判语言能力的相关研究论文。

Call for Papers

National Education Examinations Authority (NEEA) in China and British Council are proud to announce a joint conference on language assessment.

The 3rd International Conference on Language Testing and Assessment and the 5th British Council New Directions in English Language Assessment in Shanghai, 2017

NEEA

The International Conference on Language Testing and Assessment (ICLTA) is an annual academic conference organized by NEEA in China, aiming to provide a platform for Chinese researchers, exams organizations and policy makers in the field of foreign language testing and teaching to exchange ideas and views on foreign language teaching, learning and testing. This year, Shanghai Jiao Tong University will be a supporting partner of this conference.

British Council

New Directions in English Language Assessment is an annual event on the East Asian language assessment calendar, hosted by the British Council. The conference provides insight on trends in English language assessment and is a showcase for innovative approaches and research in the field, locally and internationally. New Directions is intended as space in which regional and international policy makers, educational professionals, academics and teachers and assessment practitioners can interact, exchange information, and keep abreast of the leading developments in the field.

Theme of Joint Conference: Connecting Assessment with Teaching and Learning

The 3rd International Conference on Language Testing and Assessment and the 5th British Council New Directions in English Language Assessment focuses on the critical role that language assessment plays in education. We will look at how descriptions of proficiency, teaching ability and teachers’ assessment knowledge inform teaching and assessment. We will consider how language testing interacts with teaching and learning at the beginning and end of educational cycles and beyond as students are equipped for the working world. As the emphasis on communicative competence in East Asian education systems continues, new technology solutions to large scale testing demands will also be explored. The conference aims to provide a forum for the presentation of innovative approaches and practical solutions, with a focus on real-life case studies and works-in-progress reports.

Location of Conference

Hyatt on the Bund, Shanghai, China

No. 199, Huangpu Road, Hongkou District, Shanghai

Conference Dates

2-3 December 2017

Conference Workshops

Date and venue to be announced in June 2017

Target Audience

With a focus on language assessment within educational systems in East Asia, the conference seeks to attract education and testing practitioners, policy makers and implementers, and other stakeholders with an interest in the impact of assessment on education. It will also appeal to language testing academics wishing to gain insight into current research in the field as well as new directions in testing in practice in East Asia.

Submission of Proposals

We invite proposals addressing the main and sub-themes of the conference and are particularly interested in those describing practical approaches, research case studies and innovative perspectives on challenges in language assessment in the East Asian context. Papers addressing the assessment of candidates with special needs are particularly welcome.

  • 250 words or less in length
  • reflective of at least one of the sub-themes of the conference
  • relevant to the target audience
  • of practical interest to members of the target audience

Timeline

Submission of proposal abstracts: 31 July 2017

Notification of acceptance: 10 September 2017

The Sub-themes

  • Language proficiency frameworks

This year’s conference explores recent developments in the design and use of proficiency descriptor frameworks in East Asia.

Papers exploring the localised use, adaption or development of fit-for-purpose proficiency frameworks are invited.

  • Foreign language testing for admissions and exit tests in education systems

High-level education system goals and aspirations for the language competence of students in East Asia invites further investigation into the complex interaction between testing and teaching at the admissions stage, and teaching and testing at the exit stage.

Papers investigating the impact of entrance and exit tests on teaching and of teaching on entrance and exit tests are invited.

  • Measuring teachers’ language teaching proficiency

Language tests not only assess students’ language competence but, more indirectly, the success of the teaching standard and methodology.

Papers presenting insight into the challenges of improving and measuring teachers’ English proficiency and how language proficiency impacts test preparation and student learning are invited.

  • Assessment literacy for language teachers

The positive or negative washback of assessment on teaching has generated much discussion and teachers’ understanding of how tests work and what they are measuring is a key factor in ensuring that teaching to the construct, or ability, occurs, rather than teaching to the test.

Papers focusing on the impact of teachers’ language assessment literacy on their teaching or presenting the case for the need for teacher language assessment literacy are invited.

  • Foreign Language Testing for employability

A fundamental aim of education systems is to produce employable citizens. Stemming from the interaction between teaching and testing, how should assessment be contributing to sound decisions about candidate’s employability?

Papers discussing language assessment beyond the education system or decisions about employability taken based on exit tests are invited.

  • Artificial Intelligence and Technology in language testing

With the focus on education for employability, the ability to actively communicate in a foreign language is key. Yet for teaching of speaking skills, in particular, to be effective, assessment tools need to reflect this component of language use. Large scale testing of speaking has been an elusive goal for most education systems due to human resource requirements, however. Technology has long been put forward as a potential panacea to this challenge.

Papers examining current technological developments or describing research into machine rating of communicative language are invited.
