In our response, we describe shared observations on the nature of research and practice in general educational assessment and in language assessment (including with respect to linking assessment with theories of learning, managing impact, and enhancing assessment literacy). At the same time, we also identify areas where language assessment seems to diverge from current research and practice in general educational assessment (for example in the areas of assessment purposes, construct definitions, and validation theory and practice). As a consequence, we believe that close monitoring of advances in both fields is likely to be mutually beneficial.",
