American English File 4: Teacher´s Book with Testing Program CD-ROM:2. Auflage
Practical Language Testing equips you with the skills, knowledge and principles necessary to understand and construct language tests. This intensely practical book gives guidelines on the design of assessments within the classroom, and provides the necessary tools to analyse and improve assessments, as well as deal with alignment to externally imposed standards. Testing is situated both within the classroom and within the larger social context, and readers are provided the knowledge necessary to make realistic and fair decisions about the use and implementation of tests. The book explains the normative role of large scale testing and provides alternatives that the reader can adapt to their own context. This fulfils the dual purpose of providing the reader with the knowledge they need to prepare learners for tests, and the practical skills for using assessment for learning. Practical Language Testing is the ideal introduction for students of applied linguistics, TESOL and modern foreign language teaching as well as practicing teachers required to design or implement language testing programmes.The book is supported by frequently updated online resources at http://languagetesting.info/ including sets of scenarios providing resources to study aviation English assessment, call centre assessment, military language assessment, and medical language assessment. The materials can be used to structure debates and seminars, with pre-reading and video activities.Practical Language Testing was commended as a 2012 runner-up of the prestigious SAGE/ILTA Award for Best Book on Language Testing.
Testing the waters is one thing, but Teresa Reynolds is in serious danger of going overboard. Feeling down on herself after a breakup with her ultra-critical boyfriend, Teresa arrives in Crescent Cove, Oregon, for a weekend getaway. The trouble is, her ex-boyfriend´s claims that she´s uninteresting and unworthy of love have left her wishing she could be someone else. Then a chance encounter with a cute guy on the beach gives her the opportunity to reinvent herself. Curt Mason is spending the summer avoiding women and getting over a broken heart. When he meets Térèse from Paris on the beach in Crescent Cove, his vow quickly goes out with the tide. Who is this mysterious woman, and why is he suddenly wracking his brain to remember every bit of French he learned back in high school just to try to impress her? Being Térèse seems to bring out the best in Teresa, until her little game turns into a French knot of deception. Does she dare let Curt meet the person God made her to be? Crescent Cove. Where true love comes in waves. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Becky Doughty. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/069905/bk_acx0_069905_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.
American Book Award WinnerLuther Albright is a devoted father and a designer of dams, a self-controlled man who believes he can engineer happiness for his family by sheltering them from his own emotions. But when an earthquake shakes his Sacramento home, the world Luther has constructed with such care begins to tilt: His son´s behavior becomes increasingly bizarre and threatening, his loving wife seems to grow distant, the house he built with his own hands shows its first signs of decay, and a dam of his design comes under investigation for structural flaws exposed by the tremors. Nightmarish connections begin to whisper at Luther from the most innocent of places as debut novelist MacKenzie Bezos tightens her net of psychological suspense around the reader with bravura skill. This is a harrowing portrait of an ordinary man who finds himself tested and strives not to be found wanting. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Brian Sutherland.

Unit Testing: Grundlagen Test-Hierarchien und -Organisation Mit Legacy Code arbeiten Das einzige deutsche Buch zu Unit Testing mit .NET Vieles wäre besser, wenn Software fehlerfrei wäre. Leider tendiert sie dazu, Fehler zu beinhalten. Daher wird Software normalerweise während der Entwicklung getestet; jedoch kann dies gerade bei großen Projekten ein mühsames Unterfangen sein. Unit Tests sind Programme, die überprüfen, ob die von den Entwicklern geschriebenen Komponenten so arbeiten, wie diese es beabsichtigen. Dieses Buch führt den Leser Schritt für Schritt von einfachen Tests bis hin zu Tests, mit denen sich der Code umfangreicher Softwareprojekte überprüfen und analysieren lässt. Der Leser lernt darüber hinaus, veralteten Code zu testen und der Autor diskutiert auch Tools, mit denen sich Datenbanken und weitere Technologien testen lassen. Das Buch ist für .NET-Entwickler geschrieben, aber Entwickler anderer Sprachen können ebenso von den Inhalten profitieren. Roy Osherove berät und trainiert weltweit Entwicklungsteams zum Unit Testing und Test-Driven Development. Darüber hinaus ist er Sprecher bei zahlreichen internationalen Konferenzen.
