Half a Century of Language Testing
University of Michigan English Language Institute
June 23-35 (Preconference workshops June 21 and 22)
The year 2011 marks the 50th anniversary of the publication of Robert Lado’s seminal book Language Testing (The Construction and Use of Foreign Language Tests), the first textbook in the field of language assessment. Language Testing was written while Lado served as director of the English Language Institute at the University of Michigan.
In honor of Lado's contribution to the field, LTRC 2011 will be devoted to significant developments in language testing in the last fifty years.
