Language assessment in the Middle East and North Africa: An Introduction
AbstractAssessment in language programs has constantly received substantial attention by different stakeholders in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) given the dependence on examinations in various instructional settings in this context. Research (e.g., Gebril & Hozayen, 2014) has shown language assessment being used for a wide range of purposes including screening, admission, scholarship selection, placement, and program exit. National assessment centers have also contributed to testing practices in public schools in the MENA countries.
