Constructing a Language Assessment Knowledge Base: A Focus on Language Assessment Courses
Inbar-Lourie, Ofra
Language Testing, v25 n3 p385-402 2008
The competencies required for conducting assessment in the educational context have recently been reformulated in view of social constructivist perspectives and the acknowledgement of the role of classroom assessment in promoting learning. These changes have impacted the knowledge base language assessors need to obtain, and hence the contents of language assessment courses. This paper considers the possible components of a language assessment literacy knowledge base, and proposes the establishment of a core knowledge framework for courses in language assessment.
