The Special Interest Group in Language Testing and Assessment (SIGLTA) was founded in 2017 to increase the University of Southampton’s profile in the fields in educational measurement and language assessment.


SIGLTA brings together students and staff working within the field of language testing and assessment and quantitative research methodologies to present research on a range of subjects, including language testing, feedback and assessment. 

The aims of SIGLTA are to:

  • understand fundamental aspects of language testing
  • research test impact on society and educational systems
  • investigate current issues in language testing and assessment through mixed-research methodologies
  • practise statistical packages in conducting research studies
  • bridge testing research with testing industry practices
