RESURSER - gratis vägledning och referensmaterial

ALTE has produced many guides and reference materials, in a range of languages. They are all free to download. You might also be interested in viewing our International Conference Proceedings, bi-annual conference material, videos, or our History Book.


Principles of Good Practice

ALTE's Principles of Good Practice (2020) is the third edition of a document that was first put together in 1994. The document is intended as a coherent set of guidelines that all ALTE members and affiliates subscribe to when creating and running language tests. It sets out ethical considerations and the concept of usefulness in examinations and examination qualities, placing these as principles that are worked out in ALTE's Quality Management System.


"Manual for Language Test Development and Examining"

The "Manual for Language Test Development and Examining" (2011) was produced by ALTE on behalf of the Language Policy Unit of the Council of Europe. This manual is for use with the CEFR and it is available in BasqueDutch, French and German.



Riktlinjer för konstruktion av LSP prov

"Guidelines for the Development of Language for Specific Purposes Tests" (2018) producerades av ALTE som ett tillägg till "Manual for Language Test Development and Examining" (2011). Produktionen av " Guidelines" var samordnad av LSP SIG.


Linguistic Integration of Adult Migrants: Requirements and Learning Opportunities

This report was produced on the 2018 Council of Europe and ALTE survey on Language and Knowledge of Society (KoS) policies for migrants.

This is available on the Council of Europe's website.


Multilingual Glossary of Language Testing Terms

ALTE's multilingual glossary (1998) has a particularly significant role to play in encouraging the development of language testing in less widely taught languages by establishing terms which may be new alongside their well-known equivalents in the commonly used languages. The glossary contains entries in 10 languages: Catalan, Danish, Dutch, English, French, German, Irish, Italian, Portuguese and Spanish. This volume will be of use to many working in the context of European languages who are involved in testing and assessment.

Länka språktest till CEFR: En manual

ALTE har bidragit till "Council of Europe's Manual "Relating Language Examinations" till "Common European Framework of Reference for Languages": Lärande, undervisning, bedömning/ "Learning, Teaching, Assessment" (CEFR) har producerat innehållsanalysmatriser (2014) för muntlig färdighet och skriftlig färdighet (analyser och framställningar). Alla dessa finns på "Council of Europe's" webbsida.

Minimum standarder

ALTE has established a set of common standards for its members’ exams (2007), which cover all stages of the language testing process: test development; task and item writing; test administration; marking and grading; reporting of test results; test analysis; and reporting of findings.  See our Setting Standards page for more information. Our 17 Minimum Standards are available in a range of languages.

ALTE "Can Do" Projekt

ALTE "Can Do" projektet utvecklade och validerade en uppsättning av prestationsrelaterade skalor som beskriver vad inlärare faktiskt kan göra med ett språk (2002).
Projektet bidrog i hög grad till utvecklingen av CEFR och erkänns i Appendix D, 2001 CEFR documentet.
"Can Do Statements" finns på följande språk:

ALTE "Materials for the guidance of test item writers"

Det här materialet (2005) är till för att utbilda alla som är involverade i någon del i provkonstruktionsprocessen och de som administrerar test och rapporterar resultat på prov.
