We are very happy to announce a 2-day IATEFL TEASIG seminar, in association with The Centre for English Language Learning and Assessment (CRELLA) which will take place at the University of Bedforshire in Luton, UK, on 28 & 29 October 2017.
This two-day conference will focus on teachers and the uses of assessment in the classroom. With plenaries from the leading voices in this field, we will bring together cutting-edge theoretical insights and examples of implementation in a range of educational settings. Participants will take away practical suggestions for their classrooms as well as new perspectives on the issues they face every day in their working contexts.

Assessment Literacy Survey
As part of a research study on different stakeholders’ language assessment literacy needs, Luke Harding from Lancaster University and Benjamin Kremmel from the University of Innsbruck have developed a language assessment literacy survey. The survey is designed for language teachers, language test developers, examiners, assessment researchers, score users, policy-makers, test-takers, parents of test-takers – essentially anyone with a connection to language assessment.
Please support this research by taking the survey at the link below, and sharing with colleagues and contacts.
