The newest installment in the TIRF-Routledge Global Research on Teaching and Learning English is now available!

TIRF Trustees Dr. Spiros Papageorgiou and Dr. Kathi Bailey are the editors of the sixth volume in the series. The title of the book is Global Perspectives on Language Assessment: Research, Theory, and Practice.

The series features the work of scholars from around the world whose research has been funded by Doctoral Dissertation Grants from TIRF, awarded through a carefully vetted international competition. Each chapter features both access to new and previously unpublished research in chapters written by the TIRF grantees. As with the previous volumes in this series, the authors and editors agreed to forego any honoraria or royalties so that all proceeds from the sale of the book can be dedicated to supporting TIRF’s programs.

This new book offers up-to-date research on the rapidly changing field of language assessment. The volume features original research with chapters reporting on a variety of international education settings from a range of diverse perspectives. Covering a broad range of key topics—including scoring processes, test development, and student and teacher perspectives—contributors offer a comprehensive overview of the landscape of language assessment and discuss the consequences and impact for learners, teachers, learning programs, and society. Focusing on the assessment of language proficiency, this volume provides an original compendium of cutting-edge research that will benefit TESOL and TEFL students, language assessment scholars, and language teachers.
