Praise for this book

"The Handbook of SLA and Language Testing is a wonderful volume that shows how SLA and language testing combined into one transdisciplinary research space has incredible power to move L2 learning theory into solid, new, and exciting grounds. Paula Winke and Tineke Brunfaut's stewardship over the chapters in this volume has given rise to a Handbook that will be read, consulted, and cited for years to come."
