Dr Ying Zheng has been awarded 10K from Pearson English in support of the project "Assessing Language Progress: How to Measure, and What to Compare to?". This project will recruit this university’s pre-sessional students from the 2017 cohort to examine their language progress via a series of tests, including in-house assessment batteries and Pearson’s Progress Tests. The purpose is to track progress patterns and development trajectories in relation to test takers’ individual backgrounds, and if possible, establish the concurrent validity of two testing systems.
