Assessment is a critical element in language education. Well-crafted assessments provide valid, reliable, and relevant information about student progress. Assessment data can be used to inform program evaluation and instructional design to better meet the needs of language learners and the educators who serve them.
The Center for Applied Linguistics draws on years of experience to create all types of assessments across all grade levels, including oral assessments, paperbased tests, computerized assessments, and hybrid assessment instruments. CAL offers assessment training, both face-to-face and online, both on how to use our assessments and on assessments in general.
