Abstract:

The creation of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages
(CEFR) has given rise to interest and debate among policy makers, testers,
teachers and researchers alike in the reliability and feasibility of the
assessment of second language (L2) proficiency. This volume brings together
concrete ideas on identifying and measuring L2 proficiency from different
branches of SLA research (psycholinguistic, sociolinguistic, corpus-based,
applied linguistics) to contribute to a deeper understanding of what it means
to be proficient in an L2. The chapters introduce a wide range of tools that
are innovative, reliable, and easy-to-use for the evaluation of learners’
language level with respect to both productive and receptive skills and
provide a variety of answers to the question of how to assess L2 proficiency
in a valid, reliable and practical manner. The collection will therefore
inspire language teachers, teacher trainers and language testing specialists
and help them adapt their assessment practices when necessary, and will also
be a valuable resource for postgraduate students and researchers.
