We invited Master's and Doctoral level students enrolled on courses in language assessment or a related field to submit their research ideas to us in a 3-minute video.
We encouraged students to be creative and asked them to cover the following points:
Clear outline of the research area
Motivation for selecting this topic
Approach / methodology
How this will add to the body of knowledge in language assessment
Our expert panel shortlisted 5 of the submissions and they presented People's Choice Award Voting and the panel themselves selected the Expert Panel's Choice.
