Call for Proposals: Language Testing Special Issue 2023

  • Background: The Language Testing editors will consider proposals on a coherent theme pertaining to language testing and assessment. For the 2023 special issue, the journal is particularly interested in proposals that make use of Open Science Initiatives, including preregistration, open data, and open materials. Supplemental files, data publication, and video abstracts are encouraged, as are Accessible Summaries of the papers (see https://oasis-database.org/). The journal welcomes special issue proposals that expand upon current movements in the field, including: innovations in video-based online assessment; machine learning and artificial intelligence (AI) applications in language assessment; and/or how current innovations in language assessment may shape, or influence shifts in, language testing ideologies (i.e., sets of beliefs about language tests, language testing scores, and how tests and their scores are used by societies). Transdisciplinary and mixed-methods research studies are encouraged.
