Language Education and Assessment is a peer-reviewed international journal that provides full open access to its contents and aims to publish original manuscripts in the fields of second/foreign language (L2) education and language assessment. This journal purports to offer a forum for those involved in these fields to showcase their works addressing such topics as L2 teaching theories and methods, innovations in L2 teaching, culture in L2 teaching and learning, individual differences in L2 learning, validity issues in assessing language proficiency, standardized language proficiency tests, classroom-based language assessment, computerized and computer-adaptive language testing, alternative language assessment, alignment of language instruction and assessment, and other relevant areas of inquiry.
Manuscripts considered for publication will be double blind reviewed for their presentation and analysis of new empirical data using appropriate research methods, development of theories relevant to language learning and teaching, development or refinement of language learning pedagogies, and discussion papers relevant to teachers and learners of languages at all levels. All manuscripts must be in APA format throughout (including all citations and references).
- A clear and specific title
- The category you intend to the article to fit in

Regular articles are expected to be 6000-8000 words in length (excluding references and appendixes), and are expected to include original research based on solid methodology and sufficient background research. Note that all submissions to the journal must be original work that has not been published elsewhere. If we find that an article has been published previously elsewhere before being published in Language Education & Assessment without permission from both the editors of both this and the previous publication, the offending author(s) may be responsible for re-printing and re-distribution costs of that issue of the journal.
