Guidelines for task-based university language testing

This publication is a "hands-on" manual for those language teachers and testers who are looking for a valid tool to measure their students’ language skills in a meaningful way. It shows how to link the language skills taught with those needed in studies and later in working life. It also helps language instructors, who already conduct task-based language courses, to design corresponding tests and to evaluate their students’ language performance. It also highlights the benefits of task-based language testing for all the stakeholders.


The publication provides:

  • a comprehensive picture of university-level task-based tests of languages for specific purposes;
  • samples of tests and assistance to teachers and testers in creating their own task-based tests by including checklists and forms for the development stage and also sample evaluation grids.
