It also contains an annotated listing of the following: 4 survey articles; 11 sources of information on testing and examinations; nearly 60 books, including conference reports, surveys, monographs, and research reports; 55 selected titles of articles that do not appear in the abstract section; and 10 examples of published tests and additional collections of test materials held by the CILT Library.
