Accountability in Language Assessment of Adult Immigrants in Canada.
Norton, Bonny; Stewart, Gail
Canadian Modern Language Review, v56 n2 p223-44 Dec 1999
Addresses the challenges faced in developing a task-based language assessment instrument for adult immigrants in Canada that is accountable to the needs of diverse groups of stakeholders, including learners, teachers, and administrators. The test, the Canadian Language Benchmarks Assessment (CLBA), is designed to place adult newcomers in language programs appropriate for their level of proficiency in English and to assess progress in these programs.
