Research Notes Issue 76 Exam Revisions as part of ongoing quality assurance processes
Revision of examinations is one of the stages of the test development model which has been practised in Cambridge Assessment English for decades. In this model, each exam is constantly monitored, reviewed and critically evaluated to identify areas for enhancement to ensure that they remain relevant to the needs of their stakeholders while taking advantage of the latest innovations in language learning, teaching and assessment. this process may prompt revisions to the exams with the desire to provide better feedback for learners and other stakeholders. In issue 62 of Research Notes we reported on the revisions to Cambridge English: First and Cambridge English: Advanced (now known as B2 First and C1 Advanced). In this issue we report on the revisions to A2 Key and B1 Preliminary (henceforth Key and Preliminary) and their variants for schools.
