Research overview

I specialise in language testing, my areas of interest include item writing, item writer training, and assessment literacy for test stakeholders (teachers, test candidates, examiners, item writers, administrative staff, etc.). 

Current Research

My PhD research study investigates item writer training with the aim of proposing a framework of item writing skill development. The area of particular interest for me is the role of LAL training in improving test item quality. The study has practical implications for both large-scale testing organisation and classroom assessment practitioners.
