The authors describe the 'language assessment process' and emphasize its 'multiple' components and phases and the decisions a teacher has to make at each phase. They then discuss the multiple purposes of assessment, possible language assessment tools, multiple assessment methods and ways of administering assessment, multiple ways of designing items and tasks, multiple criteria for determining the quality of assessment procedures, and multiple ways of interpreting and reporting results.
