The testing and assessment of second language learners is an essential part of the language learning process. Glenn Fulcher's Testing Second Language Speaking is a state-of-the-art volume that considers the assessment of speaking from historical, theoretical and practical perspectives.

Written in a clear and accessible manner, it covers: * Explanations of the process of test design * Costing test design projects * How to put the test into practice * Evaluation of speaking tests * Task types for testing speaking * Testing learners with disabilities It also contains a wealth of examples, including task types that are commonly used in speaking tests, approaches to researching speaking tests and specific methodologies that teachers, students and test developers may use in their own projects.
