Language Assessment as Social Practice: Challenges for Research.
McNamara, Tim
Language Testing, v18 n4 p333-49 Oct 2001
Argues that a growing awareness of the fundamentally social character of language assessment challenges a rethinking of priorities and responsibilities in language testing research. This awareness is the result of the treatment of the social character of educational assessment in Messick's (1989) work on validity and by actual changes triggered by postmodernism. (Author/VWL)
