2016 Research Call – Invitation to Tender

This Research Call is published by the Global Scale of English unit at Pearson English. One of Pearson’s driving goals is to ensure our teaching and testing materials comply with the highest standards and quality. At Pearson, research is carried out as part of our on-going validation programme, with the aim of obtaining independent advice and assessment of our products by experts in the areas of language testing, second/foreign language education, linguistics, applied linguistics, and other related fields. Faculty members, doctoral students as well as qualified freelance researchers are invited to submit proposals to investigate the validity of the Global Scale of English (Pearson metric of English language proficiency, aligned to the CEFR) and its related learning, teaching, and assessment resources or products.
