The LTRC is currently developing a Professional Certificate in Language Assessment/Language Testing. This Professional Certificate is intended to contribute to the broader mission of the LTRC, by increasing the language assessment literacy of educators across a broad range of contexts.
The Professional Certificate will be offered online and on demand, thereby targeting the growing need for accessible, inexpensive, flexibly-delivered courses in language assessment and testing.
The online course will be developed in consultation with the Graduate Online team and will be based around a series of interactive online activities. There will also be a strong discussion board component, which will promote a sense of community amongst online students and facilitate interactions between students and the wider language assessment community. The Professional Certificate will be offered for the first time in July 2018.
