This fall, join scholars from universities in the Midwest and across the nation as they present sessions regarding all aspects of language testing. Concurrent sessions will run all day; poster sessions will be held during lunch break. MwALT’s primary mission is to support graduate students studying language testing; therefore, a prize is awarded for best graduate presentation at the conference, judged by professors attending the conference. Also awarded is a prize for best student paper, which is determined by a panel of readers prior to the conference and announced at the conference.
Todd Ruecker, Ph.D., Assistant Professor, University of New Mexico, will be the plenary speaker. His talk is titled Power, Policy, and Language Assessment: How Ignorance Hurts Language Learners and their Teachers.
