Each of the 29 reviews in this book provides a state-of-the-art report of research into a different aspect of assessment of first and/or second language ability.

The volume is specifically aimed at researchers who are looking for a brief synopsis of past and present research in a specific field, but will also be useful as a general introduction to research in language assessment for applied linguists and language teachers.
