Reviews

“Assessing EFL Writing in the 21st Century Arab World: Revealing the Unknown is a very important attempt to address writing assessment issues within the Arab context, a region that has not received the due attention in the literature.” (Dr. Atta Gebril, Associate Professor of Applied Linguistics, the American University in Cairo, Egypt)

“Overall, Assessing EFL Writing in the 21st Century Arab World: Revealing the Unknown offers a number of interesting papers and perspectives to explore the issues of writing assessment. The chapters collectively would take forward existing scholarship on writing assessment in the Arabic university context.” (Dr. Icy Lee, Professor and Chairperson, Department of Curriculum and Instruction, Faculty of Education, The Chinese University of Hong Kong)
