Pamela Moss honored with Samuel J. Messick Memorial Lecture Award


Professor Pamela Moss has been honored with the Samuel J. Messick Memorial Lecture Award. The purpose of this prestigious award is to identify a presenter to deliver a major address at the joint annual meeting of the International Language Testing Association (ILTA) and the Language Testing Research Colloquium (LTRC). The Messick Memorial Lecture is designed to be of great potential relevance to the improvement of foreign or second language testing practices. This award is given in honor of the late Samuel J. Messick, a distinguished research scientist at Educational Testing Service.

Moss’ keynote, “Evolving Our Knowledge Infrastructures in Measurement/Recovering Messick’s Singerian Approach to Inquiry” is scheduled for Thursday, July 5, and will take place in Auckland, New Zealand. The abstract for Moss’ presentation exploring answers to the critical questions raised by Knowledge Infrastructure (KI) scholars, focusing in particular on how KIs in measurement might evolve to better support interpretation and use of test scores in local contexts, is available on the ITLA website.
