Tools.png Guidelines for Editors

This page is a repository for texts that are useful to practitioners and students of language assessment. Therefore, only a few non-relevant references to Calvin & Hobbes and Far Side collections will be permitted. Feel free to put sources in more than one section if relevant and to create new sections as needed. If you do create a new section though, please maintain alphabetical order of sections for easy reading.

When you edit sections of this page, please use the format templates below for books and articles or chapters. For any other sources types.... just make it up!

Please do add some blurb so that people can see why the source is relevant and, where possible, include links to the relevant Amazon site and Google Books so that readers can get more information on titles.
