About Linda Borger

My main research interests concern educational assessment, with a particular focus on language testing and assessment. In 2018, I defended my PhD thesis titled Investigating and Validating Spoken Interactional Competence: Rater Perspectives on a Swedish National Test of English. The thesis explores different aspects of validity evidence in relation to a paired speaking test, as administered in the context of a high-stakes national test at the upper secondary level of the Swedish educational system. My teaching interests are mainly within the area of educational assessment and language education. I am part of the research groups Learning and Assessment of Languages (LBS) and Prerequisites, Education, and Outcomes (FUR).
