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

  • Research Questions

  • 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.

The 5 shortlisted student submissions were:

#1 Agustinus Hardi Prasetyo – Iowa State University (00:07)

#2 Jieun Kim – University of Hawaii at Manoa (03:07)

#3 In Ji (Sera) Chun – University of Hawaii at Manoa (06:05)

#4 Nick Glasson – CRELLA (09:09)

#5 Yu Zhang – Beijing Foreign Studies University (12:16)

And the winners were:
