Assessing Language Development is a website intended to familiarize language teachers with various approaches to assessing language development.

The forms of assessment described on our site are not particular to any given language but can be used with learners of any language, including Chinese, Russian, Japanese, Arabic, and Korean as well as more commonly taught languages like Spanish, French, and German and English as a Second Language.
