Classroom Assessment for Language Teaching (CALT) Group

Posted on behalf of the new CALT Group. On a personal note, there’s a lot of good information and discussions about assessment practices with this group!


I’m the Assessment Coordinator at the University of Arizona’s Center for English as a Second Language (CESL). I have just set up a new assessment group online called the Classroom Assessment for Language Teaching (CALT) Group.

Originating from our CALT 2016 conference here in Tucson, this group is a community of practice, and an organization of professionals focused on dealing with the challenges and opportunities related to assessment in the language classroom. It is a forum for sharing ideas, resources, advice and support, and also for promoting assessment literacy in our profession.

Below you will find links to a brief video introduction to the group, as well as the group website.

If you are interested in joining the CALT Group, get in touch with me and I can arrange that. I would also be grateful if you could relay this message to any colleagues or other individuals/groups you think might be interested.

Thank you,

Subject: Re: Assessment book contribution

Dear Eddy,

Thank you very much for your email and interest in taking part in this project. It will be our pleasure given the eventuality that you are in the field of assessment.  So, please do not worry about this deadline. As I said in my email, this deadline will be extended.

You can send your idea now and you will be given enough time to write your chapter.

If you have other people who might contribute to this interesting project, please forward them  the attached call and encourage them to send their abstracts. I am extending the call till August, 20th. So far, we have 12 interesting chapters from different parts of the world. So, having a chapter from the Univ. of Arizona will be a great addition to the book.
