PITTSBURGH (June 4, 2009) – OWL Testing Software, a premier provider of affordable Web-based testing and assessment systems for academia, government, and business users, announced today that they have been invited to present to the Interagency Language Roundtable (ILR) Testing Committee this month.
The Interagency Language Roundtable (ILR) is an unfunded Federal interagency organization established for the coordination and sharing of information about language-related activities at the Federal level. It serves as the premier way for departments and agencies of the Federal government to keep abreast of the progress and implementation of techniques and technology for language learning, language use, language testing and other language-related activities.
The Language Testing Committee discusses and shares information and research related to language proficiency testing and performance testing in federal agencies. One major task of this committee is the review and, where necessary, recommendations for revision of the ILR Language Proficiency Skill Level Descriptions. Other interests include the training of effective language testers and the use of technology in testing.
