Description Proper language assessment is a key element in language education. A well-constructed test assesses the achieved goals of learning and provides valid and reliable information about the students´ language mastery and progress. In the workshop we will discuss basic guidelines and principles teachers should follow when designing language tests to avoid common assessment pitfalls. We will then apply the principles while evaluating different legal English test formats. We will examine pros and cons of each and verify their validity, reliability and practicality.
