We Language Testing Lab folks went to the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign to attend the annual MwALT conference held on October 5-6th.
The theme of the conference this year was: “Inferences and Actions in Language Testing.”
Welcome to the website for the Language Assessment Lab at Indiana University.
Directed by Dr. Sun-Young Shin, the Language Assessment Lab (or LAL) is devoted to the understanding and advancing of theory, research, and practice in second/foreign language assessment used for intended decisions to be made at a variety of educational and societal settings.
We are primarily interested in exploring the effects of different test methods on test performance, standard setting, validity issues in EAP assessments, oral fluency measurement and development, and program evaluation.
