Department of Linguistics Professors Receive a Grant from Language Learning
A subcommittee of the Board of Directors of Language Learning, a journal of research in language studies, has approved and agreed to fund a Language Learning Roundtable on language testing titled: “Connecting Language Testers and Specialists in L2 Pedagogy: Issues in Classroom-based Assessment” at the Language Testing Research Colloquium (LTRC) in Auckland, New Zealand, July 2-6, 2018. Since 1995, LTRC has been the annual meeting of the International Language Testing Association (ILTA). ILTA is an international group of language testing and assessment scholars and practitioners whose dedication and work are respected both within and outside the profession and who together define what it means to be a language tester. University of Utah, Department of Linguistics Professors, MaryAnn Christison and Adrian S. Palmer proposed the Roundtable and will serve as co-conveners for the event.
