We are starting to put up videos from past events and other resources from the SLAC Lab here. Come back and check for updates!

The Lab and the English Language Center Testing Office sponsored a workshop with Dr. Olena Rossi in which she discussed themes related to her and Dr. Tineke Brunfaut’s Language Assessment Quarterly article “Text authenticity in listening assessment: Can item writers be trained to produce authentic-sounding texts?” The workshop, which focused on how to create authentic-sounding L2 listening-test content, was on Fri. May 7, 2021, 11:30am to 12:45pm USA Eastern time. Before uploading, we slightly edited the video for privacy reasons where needed, and edited out the longer breaks.
