The Routledge Handbook of Second Language Acquisition and Language Testing Excerpt :

This Handbook, with 45 chapters written by the world’s leading scholars in second language acquisition (SLA) and language testing, dives into the important interface between SLA and language testing: shared ground where researchers seek to measure second language performance to better understand how people learn their second languages. The Handbook also reviews how to best measure and evaluate the second language (L2) learners’ personal characteristics, backgrounds, and learning contexts to better understand their L2 learning trajectories. Taking a transdisciplinary approach to research, the book builds upon recent theorizing and measurement principles from the fields of applied linguistics, cognitive science, psychology, psycholinguistics, psychometrics, educational measurement, and social psychology. The Handbook is divided into six key sections: (1) Assessment concepts for SLA researchers, (2) Building instruments for SLA research, (3) Measuring individual differences, (4) Measuring language development, (5) Testing specific populations, and (6) Measurement principles for SLA researchers.

The Routledge Handbook of Second Language Acquisition and Technology Excerpt :

"Technology-mediated language learning has matured over the past few decades, with various tools and contexts now widely used in language education for all ages and levels. Many of today's language learners have experienced technology as an ever-present feature both within and beyond the classroom, highlighting how the role of technology has expanded into many daily activities, and underscoring how research in Second Language Acquisition (SLA) can inform and support the use of established and emerging technologies. Given this continued and expanding interest in technology for SLA, as well as the heightened attention technology for language learning has received due to the recent COVID-19 global pandemic, this Handbook seeks to provide a complete and extensive survey of key topics and issues related to second, foreign, heritage, and other language (L2) learning, performance, and where relevant, teaching. Intended for a broad audience, including L2 researchers, teachers, and students, this handbook addresses not only the efficacy of technology-mediated L2 learning, but also how technology has enhanced our understanding of SLA. In addition, this Handbook explores how technology might provide researchers with methodological opportunities to more thoroughly examine processes and constructs of SLA than might be available using more traditional experimental approaches (for example, intelligent CALL and the use of 'big data'). With chapters from a diverse group of global experts, this volume discusses the impact of technology on L2 learning from a variety of perspectives and approaches, providing valuable information for research and practice and serving as a wide-ranging resource on how technology can support L2 learning and development"--
