Bitchener, John – Australian Review of Applied Linguistics, 2016
The focus of this article is on the written feedback that supervisors say they often give their second language (L2) doctoral students. Little is known about the focus of this feedback and about what supervisors consider as priorities in the early draft writing of dissertation chapters. Given the potentially different priorities and foci of…

Xu, Yueting – Australian Review of Applied Linguistics, 2016
Teacher assessment literacy (AL) is a concern for both educational assessment and teacher education research. As part of teacher AL, teacher competency of assessment planning has remained underexplored. To address this gap, this study explored how a group of 20 contest-winning university English teachers in China planned for assessment through…

Moloney, Robyn; Giles, Andrew – Australian Review of Applied Linguistics, 2015
In view of the increasing cultural and linguistic diversity in school classrooms in many English-majority countries, the profile of the pre-service teachers being trained to teach in those classrooms has become of research interest. It was found in a cohort of Australian pre-service teachers that one third of the cohort was plurilingual. This…

Cruickshank, Ken – Australian Review of Applied Linguistics, 2015
Linguistic and cultural diversity is becoming a feature of the teaching profession in OECD countries with the increase in global migration and mobility (Reid, Collins & Singh, 2014). Plurilingual teachers, however, tend to experience marginalisation in terms of gaining employment and in their workplace experiences. Although there is a body of…

Frank, Monica; Ilieva, Roumiana – Australian Review of Applied Linguistics, 2015
The success of Canada's immigration policy is intrinsically tied to employment of an immigrant workforce. Teaching is the fourth largest profession among Canadian immigrants, yet immigrants whose occupations are in education are three times less likely to be employed in their matching profession. Failure to incorporate an immigrant workforce not…

Schmidt, Gabriele – Australian Review of Applied Linguistics, 2014
For the last ten years, language learning motivation research has focussed on how learners see knowledge of a language as part of their identity.

Hamid, M. Obaidul; Doan, Linh Dieu – Australian Review of Applied Linguistics, 2014
The significance of errors in explicating Second Language Acquisition (SLA) processes led to the growth of error analysis in the 1970s which has since maintained its prominence in English as a second/foreign language (L2) research. However, one problem with this research is errors are often taken for granted, without problematising them and their…

Alshahrani, Abdulaziz; Storch, Neomy – Australian Review of Applied Linguistics, 2014
In recent years there have been a growing number of studies on written corrective feedback (WCF), particularly in terms of the efficacy of different types of WCF. However, few of these studies have investigated what shapes teachers' WCF practices and how they align with students' preferences. This study, conducted with staff and students in a…

Major, George; Terraschke, Agnes; Major, Emily; Setijadi, Charlotte – Australian Review of Applied Linguistics, 2014
This paper explores the concept of social inclusion from the perspective of recent migrants, from language backgrounds other than English, at work in Australia.

van Zeeland, Hilde – Australian Review of Applied Linguistics, 2013
The vast majority of second language (L2) vocabulary research focuses on learners' knowledge of isolated word forms. However, it is unclear to what extent this knowledge can be used as an indicator of knowledge in context (i.e. reading and listening). This study aims to shed light on this issue by comparing ESL learners' knowledge of the meaning…

Booth, Dawn – Australian Review of Applied Linguistics, 2012
Despite growing interest in the theorisation of teacher-based assessment (TBA), very little research has paid close attention to how teachers practice assessment embedded in real classroom contexts. This longitudinal study over one school term reports on the TBA of young learners with English as an additional language (EAL) in New Zealand primary…
