The Research and Thought Leadership Group of Cambridge English Language Assessment continue their mission to disseminate innovative, interdisciplinary research through the latest publication of the Studies in Language Testing (SiLT) series, which was done in collaboration with TIRF. Advancing the Field of Language Assessment: Papers from TIRF Doctoral Dissertation Grantees (SiLT volume 46) comprises a set of 11 research papers written by recipients of the Cambridge English-funded TIRF Doctoral Dissertation Grants. By bringing these papers together, the volume addresses the role that context plays in creating language assessments that are responsive to the needs of learners. The volume is edited by MaryAnn Christison and Nick Saville, both members of the TIRF Board of Trustees, and features an epilogue by TIRF President Kathi Bailey. It will be available for order at the end of November.
More information about new titles in the SiLT series will be included in future TIRF newsletters. Click here to view the full list of SiLT titles, including Volume 46.
