This volume gathers contributions in the closely linked fields of English language assessment and language education. The contributors from China and Hong Kong represent a mixture of established and new scholars. Areas covered in the language education section range across major developments in the redefining of Hong Kong's secondary and tertiary curricula, as well as the huge field of China's vocational education curriculum. Regarding assessment, the contributions reflect major changes in the marking of examinations in Hong Kong, whereby all examinations from 2012 onwards are marked onscreen, to quality control issues in the administration of China's College English Test, which is taken by over 10 million candidates every year.

"English Language Education and Assessment: Recent Development in Hong Kong and Chinese Mainland provides timely and instructive insights into how assessment is practiced in classrooms in both the Chinese mainland and Hong Kong. ... not only offers readers a general perspective on issues involved in English language teaching and assessment but also presents practices with strong local features. ... It also serves as an important stepping strong towards inspiring more studies in language education and assessment in the Chinese context." (Li Liu, Frontiers of Education in China, Vol. 10 (2), 2015)
