Short description

In 2003-2005 the GU Department of Education Language and Literature Unit was the Swedish partner in a European network project for assessing language skills, ENLTA. Thirteen European countries took part in the network, whose primary aim was to help establish the EALTA – The European Association for Language Testing and Assessment. Within the framework of the network the LaL Unit was active in developing a Code of Practice for language assessment and was responsible for a study of European students’ and teachers’ conceptions about assessment and examinations in foreign languages.
