Language Assessment in English for Specific Purposes (ESP) and English for Professional Purposes (EPP)
  • Conduct multimodal analysis of corpus, observational, and interview data to establish ecologically valid task design for specialized oral language assessments
  • Evaluate existing models of spoken language assessment criteria (e.g., the Common European Frame of Reference, ACTFL OPI) for application to English language oral proficiency assessments
  • Develop quantitative and qualitative measures to evaluate both language gains and impacts on workplace engagement before and after EPP instructional interventions
