520 1  "This Studies in Language Testing volume explores the 
       impact of multilingualism on language assessment. It 
       considers ways of describing and comparing language 
       qualifications to establish common levels of proficiency, 
       balancing the need to set common standards and at the same
       time sustain linguistic diversity. Three broad themes are 
       explored. Quality and diversity are addressed via avenues 
       such as the quality of examinations and codes of practice,
       as well as the research on impact in various state 
       certification projects. In relation to ethics and 
       diversity, several papers focus on the complex 
       relationships between linguistic identity and diversity on
       one hand, and immigration and citizenship policy on the 
       other, as assessment increasingly interfaces with language
       proficiency requirements for citizenship and for active 
       participation of newcomers in social, occupational and 
       democratic processes. 
520 8  Transparency and diversity are examined through the 
       relationship of examinations to the Common European 
       Framework from a number of different perspectives."--BOOK
