ETAS TEA SIG

ETAS TEA SIG aims to provide a platform for members to share, discuss and source information, help, and resources on all aspects of language testing and assessment. Whether you assess your own learners in continuous assessment, provide pre-learning formative assessment or are involved in main frame examinations board or high stakes specific purpose testing, this SIG is for you.

ETAS events each year provide many workshops and presentations on the varied ways and fields of assessment as well as providing a discussion & networking platform for test development, testing theory and language testing policy. The SIG is also represented at International level through the IATEFL TEASIG as well as at other events and organizations such as ALTE and EALTA.

Contributions are always welcome from SIG members and you are encouraged to contact your SIG coordinator with any ideas, thoughts, questions you may have. We also welcome contributions from members on resources, links, articles, study areas, etc that would benefit all members of the SIG.

Your TEASIG Coordinator is Emilia Siravo. You can contact here by email, say 'hello' and let her know if you have any special needs or wishes in regard to the SIG.
