Cambridge Michigan Language Assessments (CaMLA) is pleased to announce the recipients of Spaan research grants for 2016:
- Ute Römer and Jayanti Banerjee: “Validating the MET speaking test through phraseological analysis: A corpus approach to language assessment”
- Ruslan Suvorov: “Investigating test-taking processes and strategies during a computer-based MET: Evidence from eye tracking”
The Spaan Research Grant Program was established in recognition of Mary Spaan’s many contributions to the field of language assessment through her more than three decades of work at the University of Michigan. The grants cover the cost of data collection and analysis for studies related to CaMLA tests. CaMLA also provides data to support the funded projects. Papers will be published as part of the CaMLA Working Papers.
We received many excellent applications this year and would like to thank everyone who applied.
