[LAGB) Audit of grammatical knowledge

News summary

The (LAGB) Linguistics Association of Great Britain would like to invite those of you who teach first-year undergraduates to take part in a very brief audit of school-leavers' (explicit) grammatical knowledge. The audit uses a short two-part questionnaire which was first used in 1986, then again in 1997, so the results will reveal long-term trends as well as informing your teaching.

You can download the questionnaire from their website.

The same site includes a marking scheme and a report form. They will ask you to mark the tests yourself and to report them using the report form. They will then feed back on the results they get, and will expect the trends to be of interest to those responsible for language education in schools.
