Abstract:

New Edition

In this book the author builds a comprehensive framework for the assessment 
of young language learners in both foreign language and second language 
learning situations. She begins by considering why we need a special book 
on young learner assessment, and describes the nature of young learner 
language learning. The assessment approach is task-based and is centred 
around tasks and techniques suitable for young learners, with particular 
emphasis on classroom assessment. Oral language assessment, and 
reading and writing assessment are addressed in separate chapters, as is the 
large-scale testing of young learners. Underpinned by sound theory, the book 
is full of practical guidelines, and draws on examples of assessment 
contexts, issues and practices from around the world. Assessing Young 
Language Learners was winner of the Kenneth W Mildenberger Prize in 2006.
