Global universities will collaborate on language assessment research

LARN will be the first research network on language assessment in the world that brings together research-intensive universities at this scale. The member institutions will collaborate on a wide range of research areas, practices and outreach in the study of language assessment, which requires expertise in linguistics, statistics, psychology, psychometrics, human learning and instruction, and assessment technologies, just to name a few. According to estimates, nearly 4 million students are enrolled in universities and colleges outside of their home country, with 42 percent enrolled in major English-speaking countries. China is the leading country of origin for international students, with the number of Chinese students rising substantially in recent years.
