Broadening, Deepening, and Consolidating
Cumming, Alister
Language Assessment Quarterly, v1 n1 p5-18 2004
I encourage the editors of and contributors to "Language Assessment Quarterly" to continue, and to extend, three directions that are integral to the development of the field of language assessment: (a) to broaden the scope of inquiry and contexts that inform knowledge about language assessment; (b) to deepen the theoretical premises and philosophies of language assessment; and (c) to consolidate through systematic, critical reviews the information base of prior research on language assessment. To this end, I review various, notable studies conducted over the past decade that in my view exemplify these directions, suggesting topics or approaches that publications in the journal might productively pursue.
