Research Interests
Language testing and assessment, TESOL teacher education, L2 pragmatics, conversation analysis
Professional Information
My current focus is in developing CA-informed tests (CAIT) -- that is, assessments of L2 oral pragmatics ability that are based upon the findings and methodology of conversation analysis (CA). A second area of interest is in the assessment-literacy acquisition processes of L2 classroom teachers, with possible applications to teacher education. I also have more general interests in conversation analysis, test validity theory, and the philosophy of science.
Research Output
