It is imperative for the language teaching profession and people involved in language policy to have a clear sense of what the similarities and differences are between the two systems and what correspondences exist between them. This volume presents original research and discussion by leading experts in the field focusing on correspondences from an assessment perspective. It provides an inside view of the genesis and present status of both frameworks as well as an authoritative discussion of the fundamental issues involved in attempting a crosswalk between frameworks in language assessment. In addition, this volume brings together several seminal studies which empirically address correspondences between frameworks.Aligning Frameworks of Reference in Language Testing presents the first truly collaborative work by key researchers and scholars from both sides of the Atlantic working within and across both frameworks. It will be essential reading for students, researchers and practitioners in applied linguistics, assessment, teacher education, and language policy. von Tschirner, Erwin
