Congratulations to language testing PhD student Salomé Villa Larenas who has been awarded a Doctoral Dissertation Grant (DDG) by The International Research Foundation for English Language Education.

In her doctoral research, Salomé is investigating the language assessment literacy of teacher educators (university lecturers who train pre-service teachers). The study explores the theoretical knowledge, skills and practices in language assessment of English language teacher educators, and the extent and nature of the language assessment literacy training they conduct with pre-service teachers. Salomé’s research is situated in Chile, and it is the first time that a TIRF DGG is awarded to a Chilean researcher.

The grant is a wonderful support for Salomé’s research, and we wish her all the best with the next phase of her study!
