Anyone interested in examining of less widely tested languages, in challenges, solutions and instruments related to this.
LWTL Members will work on:
The members of the group will first meet at the ALTE meeting in November and decide on the main issues they want to address and the first project they will work on.
The SIG encourages and promotes multilingualism in the area of teaching and testing languages. Its members work for finding solutions to challenges specific to the assessment of languages with smaller numbers of candidates and for indicating suitable resources and innovative methods and strategies which can contribute to the validity of exams. The SIG intends to bring together the experience related to LWTL coming from language teaching and testing centres, the institutional environment, the research area and different stakeholders.
