Call Deadline: 16-Sep-2019

Meeting Description:

We would like to invite you to submit a proposal for a presentation at our symposium titled Re-Envisioning Language Assessment to Meet the Needs of Learners in a Changing World: What Can Diagnostic and Dynamic Assessment Contribute? (Symposium no. S123) at 2020 World Congress of Applied Linguistics (AILA), to be held on 9-14 August, 2020, in Groningen, the Netherlands.

The submission deadline is September 16, 2019.

The symposium aims to take stock of the most interesting recent developments in both diagnostic and dynamic assessment to pave way for integrating the strengths of these two assessment frameworks. We hope to initiate dialogue among researchers that can lead both to new theoretical frameworks and novel practical applications of assessment.

Call for Papers:

With apologies for cross-posting.

We invite presentations in either of the two formats used at AILA 2020:

- Standard multimodal presentations of 12-20 minute presentations with a ppt. The amount of time allocated to the presentations will depend on the number of accepted submissions.
- Focused multimodal presentations, where speakers first advertise the presentations for 2–5 minutes and then present them with a poster during the lunch and/or drinks.

Our featured speaker is Professor Matthew Poehner (The Penn State University, USA).

You can find more information about our symposium by searching for it by the names of the symposium organisers (Huhta or Leontjev) or by the name of the symposium (the keywords ‘diagnostic’ or ‘dynamic assessment’ also work) and submit your proposal at: https://www.aila2020.nl/call-for-papers

Remember the symposium number S123 when submitting your abstract.

You will need to include the following:

1. Author(s) and affiliation(s)
2. Title: max. 20 Words
3. Abstract: max. 300 Words
4. Summary for the programme: max. 50 Words
