This half-day pre-conference course is aimed at those who would like to learn about statistics for language testing. 

The course provides an overview of the different stages at which statistics are useful throughout the cycle of designing, validating, managing, and reviewing a language exam, and suggestions for practical follow-up action. It also aims to help better understand the role of statistics and how to interpret them when working with analysts, or individually. 

The course will be led by Jane Lloyd (Cambridge University Press and Assessment), an experienced tutor and expert in the field. 

It takes place in the morning and is followed by a Basic Rasch Analysis course. Although not obligatory, ALTE advises to come to both, as this will be more beneficial. 

There is a discount for those who book the morning course and the afternoon course. There is an additional discount for those who book all the pre-conference courses (i.e. am and pm course on Tuesday, 9 April and the whole day course on Wednesday, 10 April: Digital language testing with Artificial Intelligence). Please contact the ALTE Services Unit: to request the discount for multiple course bookings. 

Please note that participants are advised to bring their own laptops for this course. 

A more detailed programme will be available closer to the date.
