about

Learning-Oriented Assessment in Language Classrooms gives readers a better understanding of how language assessment can contribute to the achievement of more successful learning outcomes in the second language classroom. The book presents research on how assessment has previously been conceptualized and used in classrooms and moves into a discussion of the practical considerations, challenges, and benefits involved in implementing a more learning-oriented approach in these same contexts. In this volume, James E. Purpura and Carolyn Turner present students and professionals in applied linguistics, second language acquisition, and language testing and education with a clearer awareness of the possibilities afforded by a more learning-focused approach in the second language classroom.
