Language Testing Research Centre Symposium

Mapping tensions between language testing, policies and practices

Thursday 19 November 2020

This symposium was part of the Association for Language Testing and Assessment of Australia and New Zealand (ALTAANZ) and Language Testing Research Centre (LTRC) online celebratory event.

The year 2020 marks two important milestones: the LTRC’s 30th anniversary and the ALTAANZ's 10th anniversary.

To celebrate both anniversaries, the LTRC together with the ALTAANZ Executive Committee decided to host a FREE, online celebratory event.

As part of the online event, to celebrate the 30 year history of the LTRC, a symposium was held with some of the former LTRC directors and associates Tim McNamara, Cathie Elder and Joe Lo Bianco on the theme of ‘Mapping tensions between language testing, policies and practices’.
