My choice to topic is dele certification for Spanish language which is internationally recognised. I need sources for this topic not to be older than 10 to 12 years old
Over the past decade, language testing and other forms of language assessment have generated debate and discussion as a result of socio-political and cultural perspectives, advances in technology and assessment, and current trends in language testing research.

Using the literature and the readings in this unit, students are asked to write an argumentative essay that critically evaluates the practice of language testing and assessment in an educational environment that interests them (e.g., school, university, private language centre, testing system, or regimes such as Cambridge Assessment, Pearson or TOEFL). Students may choose to evaluate testing procedures or alternative forms of assessment.

This essay must demonstrate students’ deep knowledge and understanding of constructs of effective assessment that influence test taker’s competence and performance and how test-taker performance is interpreted. It also should also demonstrate students’ understanding of the changing nature of assessment practices in the current socio-political context and its consequences. It is important to provide sufficient evidence to support your argument, including examples of items or tasks.

Students will be assessed on the following marking criteria:

1. Demonstrated knowledge and insightful understanding of concepts of language testing or assessment. 15 %

2. Critical evaluation of the test, or assessment, its purpose, rationale, and the scoring systems supported by evidence. 10 %

3. Appropriate and accurate application of terminology and concepts 10 %

4. Quality of academic English including citations and referencing style 5 %

Word length: no more than 2,000 words (excl. references, appendix)
