Seminar paper from the year 2010 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Other, grade: 1, University of Vienna, language: English, abstract: Authenticity is regarded as an important feature of language tests, but commonly the notion is related only to the use of authentic material. In the course of this class, however, we found out that the concept of authenticity is actually far more comprehensive. It does indeed include characteristics of the input of test tasks, but it is also concerned with the interaction between input and expected response, the setting and the format of a test. Hence, we decided to work mainly on the topic of authenticity in this final report of our course on language assessment.
