Fundamental Considerations in Technology Mediated Language Assessment

«

"Technology has taken over language assessment and we are all becoming familiar with the latest generation of products, taking assessments at home on mobile devices, interacting with avatars and having our performance scored by a machine. In this pioneering collection, Sadeghi and Douglas have brought together some of the leading voices in the field to help us to get to grips with the profound practical and theoretical questions raised by the shift to technology mediated assessment. This book is indispensable reading for everyone who makes or studies language assessments in the digital age."

Tony Green, University of Bedfordshire, UK

"This book presents in depth discussions by some forty language testing scholars from all over the world on the use of technology and AI in language assessment. Most chapters recognize that Covid-19 has driven learning, teaching and assessment to the internet and observe how the negative impact of the epidemic on students’ participation in schooling is paired with positive impulses for technological developments, thereby offering new opportunities for remote assessment and for timely and adaptive feedback to students’ learning. The issue of validity is recurrent throughout the book. Yet as long as the language testing field judges the performance of machines by their capability to generate outcomes similar to those produced by humans, automated processes will never reach their full potential."

John H. A. L. De Jong, Language Testing Services

"Educators have been utilizing technology steadily and increasingly in different areas of education for almost half a century. The assessment field is no exception. However, the COVID -19 Pandemic forced education into an almost complete online system where the infrastructures were not adequate in many places. Further, although some educational organizations offered online courses before the pandemic, many teachers did not have enough knowledge or could not receive training in time to operate in virtual contexts. More importantly, the critical role of assessment in making valid and reliable decisions required more secure technology than those in other fields. In such a critical context, practitioners needed guidelines from specialists and policymakers to cope with the crisis. This book is a pleasant contribution to addressing their needs. The selection of the topics demonstrates the editors’ informed taste and deep concern about the use of technology in language assessment. The variety of the issues addressed in the book will make it helpful to a wide range of practitioners and scholars. An important point that adds to the value of this book is that it will serve as a useful reference even after the COVID-19 pandemic when technology continues to dominate education in general and language assessment in particular."
