520 |a The testing and assessment of language competence continues to be a much debated issue in foreign language teaching and research. This book is the first one to address the testing of four important dimensions of foreign language education which have been left largely unconsidered: learner autonomy, intercultural competence, literature and literary competence, and the integration of content and language learning. Each area is considered through a theoretical framework, followed by two empirical studies, raising questions of importance to all language teachers: how can one test literary competence; can intercultural competence be measured; what about the integrated assessment of content-and-language in CLIL and teaching; and, is progress in autonomous learning skill gaugeable.
