'An especially clear, practical introductory textbook for Masters students in language education and practicing language educators, focusing usefully on common assessment issues in pedagogy, defining succinctly fundamental concepts, and accounting cogently for current theories and recent research.' - Alister Cumming, University of Toronto, Canada '...Green's book has raised my awareness of assessment cycle stages beyond my classroom-wall horizons. Whatever your position in the field of language assessment, I am sure you will find here plenty of relevant, eye-opening, practice-oriented leads that are well worth following up.' - Simon Andrewes, Modern English Teacher 'Overall, this is an excellent introductory-level book that practising teachers and postgraduate students would find very useful. The wide coverage of key concepts and the strategic use of practical examples provide a sound grounding for anyone interested in language assessment and testing.' - Constant Leung, King's College, London 'All in all, Green's clear and practical treatment of common assessment issues in language education offers a succinct introductory textbook for the practitioners in the field. These issues have been deeply taken into account not as concepts only but also, whenever possible, a bridge is made to move from theory to practice.' - Bahareh Farzizadeh, University of Tehran, Iran 'In his new book, Exploring Language Assessment and Testing, Anthony Green successfully presents an overview of past and current issues in language testing with a focus on classroom-based assessment. With an eye toward promoting assessment literacy, Green has written in a way that is easy to understand as well as intellectually engaging. This book is part of the Introductions to Applied Linguistics series by Routledge, which is intended for graduate students in teacher-education courses. Without a doubt, the novice reader will find the material informative and useful.' - Erik Voss, Teachers College, Columbia University Working Papers in TESOL & Applied Linguistics
