AbstractThis volume brings together a set of eight IELTS-related research studies - four on reading and four on listening . It chronicles the evolution of the Reading and Listening Tests in IELTS and ELTS from 1980 to the present day and explains the rationale for revising these tests at various points in their history and the role played in this by research findings. Findings from these studies provide valuable evidence on the construct validity of the IELTS test; they are also instrumental in highlighting aspects needing attention, and thus directly inform the continuing evolution of the IELTS reading and listening tests. The volume reviews and comments on the specific contribution of each study to the ongoing process of IELTS reading and listening test design and development.
