Keywords: language assessment
research methods
theories
educational practices
Issue Date: Jan-2004
Publisher: Taylor & Francis (Routledge)
Citation: Cumming, A. (2004). Broadening, deepening, and consolidating. Language Assessment Quarterly, 1(1), 5-18. doi:10.1207/s15434311laq0101_2
Abstract: I encourage the editors of and contributors to Language Assessment Quarterly to continue, and to extend, three directions that are integral to the development of the field of language assessment: (a) to broaden the scope of inquiry and contexts that inform knowledge about language assessment; (b) to deepen the theoretical premises and philosophies of language assessment; and (c) to consolidate through systematic, critical reviews the information base of prior research on language assessment. To this end, I review various, notable studies conducted over the past decade that in my view exemplify these directions, suggesting topics or approaches that publications in the journal might productively pursue.
