The development of language tests is a highly specialized skill. CaMLA commissions draft items from professional item writers who meet set educational, experiential, and content tests. Each item is written in compliance with detailed item specifications that describe the purpose, intent, and design of the assessment and its components. All items are rigorously reviewed and edited by experts in language assessment and education who are familiar with the needs, activities, and necessary proficiency levels of the tested population. Items are reviewed for content, fair use, and adherence to set fairness principles.
At this time, CaMLA is accepting applications from freelance item writers, as detailed in our Freelance Opportunity (PDF) flyer. After reviewing the flyer, please send any inquiries to email@example.com.
The CaMLA internship program provides professional training and research opportunities for English language teaching professionals and graduate students. Successful applicants will work closely with CaMLA teams on English language assessment tasks and projects that are appropriate to their interests and skills.
