In recent years, an increasing number of universities and training institutions have been offering modules to develop preservice or in-service teachers‟ knowledge and understanding of issues in language testing and assessment. This special edition of English Language Teacher Education and Development (ELTED) seeks to capture a range of recent developments in promoting “assessment literacy” in different locations across the world. The articles included in the present volume fulfil at least two purposes: firstly, they provide outlines of how an understanding of issues relating to assessment and testing can be fostered in specific, local contexts, so as to develop professional practice in this area; and secondly, and equally importantly, they show how the success of such teacher education initiatives may be further evaluated, often collaboratively, so as to develop a more refined awareness of the particular needs of participants in such modules.
