Abstract

Assessing EAP: Theory and practice in Assessment Literacy provides EAP educators with a series of practical and accessible tools to assist in the process of developing and interpreting EAP tests and assessments. Assessing EAP is designed with busy EAP professionals in mind and can either be followed as a complete course, or used where necessary to focus on particular areas of the EAP testing and assessment process. Assessing EAP seeks to build a transferable framework of skills which will enhance the Assessment Literacy of educators responsible for creating EAP tests and assessments in a range of different contexts. The book contains 15 chapters, underpinned by research, and backed up with a list of recommended further reading. Each chapter contains a number of tasks which encourage the application of the theories in focus. Extension activities and a model for communicating good practice to stakeholders are provided at the end of each chapter, so that the key skills of EAP departments can be highlighted and communicated effectively. A glossary also defines the technical terms which have been referred to in the book.
